Caldwell Elementary recognized for writing scores

TYLER, TX - Just for the Kids (JFTK) has selected Caldwell Elementary Arts Academy as a 2008 Just for the Kids Higher Performing School in Texas based on its performance in writing. Caldwell was selected as a higher performing campus based on analyses conducted by the National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA), sponsor of the Just for the Kids Campaign.

"I would like to thank the Just for Kids organization for this recognition," said Rebecca Clapp, Principal of Caldwell Elementary Arts Academy.  "Caldwell is so honored by this recognition of our writing scores and do appreciate what the JFTK organization does for all students.  At Caldwell, we have an unbelievably talented and gifted staff who works tirelessly so that all our Caldwell STARS are successful in all endeavors." 

NCEA's analysis included student test results from spring 2006, 2007, and 2008. For grades 4 through 11, NCEA used an academic growth analysis that examines whether the students in each school perform above predicted based on their prior year's scores. Since students are not tested prior to third grade, NCEA looked at achievement levels of students from third grade who have been continuously enrolled in the school or district for three years or more, rather than prior test scores. In all cases, student and school demographics were taken into account in determining whether a school's students performed above predicted.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
