Genesee Joint School District Receives High Marks

Genesee Joint School District continues to receive high academic scores on the Idaho State Achievement Test(ISAT) and the National ACT as well as receive State Recognition for outstanding FFA program.

Genesee Joint School district received official recognition from the State Department of Education for making Adequate Yearly Progress for the 2009/10 school year. Students in grades 3-8 and the 10th grade scored 97.1% proficient in the area of Reading and 97.4% proficient in the area of Math. Genesee Joint schools also had 100% graduation rate. These high proficiency scores and graduation rate, show a true commitment to the educational process and are reflective of a high level of student commitment, teacher dedication and parent support. Quality education and learning takes place when you have a community that supports and cares about education. I believe these scores reflect such a commitment.

The district also received the ACT College Readiness report. This report reflects the achievement of the last 5 years of graduates from the Genesee Joint School District. The ACT consists of curriculum-based tests of educational development designed to measure the skills needed for success in the first year of college coursework. The 2010 graduates scored higher in all 4 core areas than the state average. (Assessed Areas: English Composition, Algebra, Social Science, Biology)

We would also like to congratulate the Genesee Joint School District FFA program. The FFA program received 2nd place in the Helping Communities Grow Recognition Program. The FFA will receive a $3,000 grant for their hard work and effort. Congratulations to Mr. Morrow and all the students involved in the program.

Congratulations to all of these students, staff members and community for a job well done.
