Anderson School District One was ranked number 5 among 11 districts in the state with Federal Report Card Rating of “A” which was released Tuesday. The Elementary and Secondary Education Act Federal Accountability System, known as the federal report card, scores each school and district based on test scores, attendance and graduation rates.
Anderson One’s 2014 graduation rate increased from 86.9 to 91.8, the fourth highest in the state following York 4, Barnwell 29 and Calhoun.
David Havird, Superintendent of Anderson One, and the district office challenged the district to improve the graduation rate from 86.9 to 90. The teachers and administration took the challenge and met the goal. For the first time, the graduation rate is 90.8.
