Concerns remain about discrepancies in numbers


The Register-News

MT. VERNON — Mt. Vernon Township High School's 2012-2013 state test results will remain the same as what's listed in the district's recently released School Report Card.

In November, Superintendent Michael Smith had raised questions about the accuracy of some of the Report Card data related to the percentage of students who met or exceeded standards on the Prairie State Achievement Examination.

After consulting with the state, however, Smith said he is now satisfied with how the state arrived at MVTHS' percentages for 2012-2013. Even so, he pointed out there are still discrepancies between the state's data and the district's numbers that warrant concern.
