School attendance OK, despite illness

By James Roberts

Attendance at local schools remains strong as the flu season kicks into gear.

Attendance rates have dropped at some local schools but are not at severe levels.

"Actually, our attendance has been a little better," said Kirby Smith, Campbellsville High School principal. "We still have some kids out sick, but I think as a whole our students are getting better."

Campbellsville Middle School Principal Chris Kidwell said attendance had dropped a few days, but otherwise has been strong.

Schools see mixed results on annual tests

By Calen McKinney

This year's No Child Left Behind data has left some mixed results for local school systems. Some scores are up, but several schools have been ruled as not making adequate yearly progress.

NCLB results were released last week, along with an interim performance report that replaces CATS results. Signed into law in January 2002, the federal NCLB Act requires states to provide information on districts' progress to reach proficiency by 2014.
