Looking Back at 2012 -
The start of a new year brings opportunities for us to address new challenges. It also allows us to look back at what we've done and review our accomplishments. Despite what some of our critics may say, we are doing some great things.
2012 Bright Star Award: Mt. Olive CUSD #5 won this award for 2012. The award criteria are based on those districts whose studentsí academic performance ranks in the upper one third of Illinois school districts, but who expenditure per pupil ranks in the lower one-fourth of Illinois school districts.
Illinois near the top for state graduation rates: In preliminary data released by the U.S. Department of Education in November, Illinois ranked 10th in the nation for its graduation rate, which was 84 percent. Among the 10 most populous states, Illinois was second, behind only Texas at 86 percent.
Illinois earns top ACT score among states that test all students: The graduating Class of 2012 received the highest composite ACT score (20.9) among the nine states that tested 100 percent of 2012 graduates. Additionally, the state has shown continued improvement in the percentage of graduates who meet ACT's College Readiness Benchmarks over the last five years.
I am very proud of the Mt. Olive School District, and know that the students who attend Mt. Olive Community Unit School District are getting a first class education.
