FUSD Student Test Scores Improving

FONTANA–An increasing number of Fontana Unified School District students met or exceeded standards on California’s Smarter Balanced tests for English language arts (ELA) and mathematics, according to district officials and data released Wednesday by the state Department of Education.
The data from the second-year, computer-based tests – administered to students in grades three through eight, and grade 11 – show progress in student performance and achievement levels on the more rigorous California Standards, which are in their third year of implementation and challenge students to apply the knowledge and skills they are learning in the classroom to real-world problems.
The 2016 state test scores show that FUSD students improved their mathematics and English language arts/literacy performance over last year, with students meeting or exceeding state standards rising to 33 from 28 percent in ELA and to 19 percent from 17 percent in mathematics.
“We are seeing growth in student achievement levels across the board and are incredibly proud of the hard work our teachers and staff have put forward to ensure our students are a receiving a high-quality education that will transfer to the real world,” Fontana Unified Board President Lorena Corona said. “While we know there are areas in which we can improve, our District is confident that the positive gains this year are a reflection of what’s to come.”
