CHAPEL HILL -- The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools continued to fare well in the N.C. Department of Public Instruction ABCs growth results released last week. Thirteen of the district's schools attained high growth, while four met expected growth.Schools making high growth were Chapel Hill High School, Carrboro High School, Scroggs Elementary, Estes Hills Elementary, Culbreth Middle, Carrboro Elementary, McDougle Middle School, Smith Middle School Glenwood Elementary, Phillips Middle, Ephesus Elementary, Seawell Elementary and Rashkis Elementary.Schools making expected growth were McDougle Elementary, Frank Porter Graham Elementary and East Chapel Hill High School.One more school made high growth this year over last year, when 12 schools achieved this level of performance. As its name implies, "growth" is a measure of how much students have improved from one year to the next."I am pleased that students in our district continue to demonstrate growth on these stat-mandated exams," said Superintendent Neil Pedersen. "It's important that all of our students show improvement from year to year."The ABCs were calculated differently this year as the state's End-of-Grade tests in reading and five of the End-of-Course tests underwent revision. Due to changes to the accountability program for 2007-08, the first year tests are revised the growth on them is not included in the overall growth calculation.ABCs growth is the factor on which teacher bonuses are awarded. Usually, labels such as "School of Excellence" and "School of Distinction" are issued at this time. These will be coming in the fall once full proficiency rates may be calculated with the delayed reading and updated interim EOC results.
