LETTER: District 622 ‘beats the odds’

To the Editor:

Congratulations to the staff and students of District 622 for “beating the odds” with their recent state test score progress!

Results of the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments show that District 622ís proficiency scores far exceed what one might expect based on the percentage of students who qualify for free or reduced-priced lunches. Further, District 622 continues to outperform similar districts in Minnesota. Go to rc.education.state.mn.us/ to view the report.

District leaders give credit to outstanding staff, successful pre-kindergarten programs and investments in teacher/staff training.

Area residents continue to have good reason to be proud of their fine schools.

Students are our future.

Sen. Chuck Wiger, District 43
