By: Douglas Sullivan, The Dickinson Press
Every year the Dickinson Public School District, in cooperation with the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction, publishes an annual progress report on student achievement called the School District Profile. This profile is now available for your review. I encourage you to access and study this important information. This report demonstrates the progress our students are making in terms of our challenging academic standards.
You may access the School District Profile for the Dickinson Public School District on the Department of Public Instruction’s Web site at www.dpi.state.nd.us/dpi/reports/profile/index.shtm. Select the Dickinson Public School District and the most recent year to access the various reports available. If you prefer, the staff at the Central Administration Office will have access to a printed copy for you to review.
The annual School District Profile summarizes how well our students performed this past year in reading/English language arts and mathematics on the North Dakota State Assessment and on other academic indicators. The annual School District Profile presents the percentage of students who have achieved proficiency in reading/language arts and mathematics. The Profile also provides our student attendance rates and graduation rates. The Profile reviews the achievement of all students and of specific subgroups of students. Additionally, the Profile indicates the results from our students over two years to those of the state as a whole.
The School District Profile for the Dickinson Public School District is an important summary of how well our students are progressing in their basic academic skills. Providing a quality education for our students is everyone’s concern. In order for us to improve, we must begin with an understanding of how well our students are performing.
We at Dickinson Public Schools take pride in the support we collectively provide our students. Together with the encouragement of our parents and patrons, we will build on our successes to improve and further raise the quality of education within the Dickinson Public School District. I thank you for your continued commitment and support in building a strong education system here in Dickinson.
