Bill Lovell, a member of Trigg County’s Voluntary Partnership Assistance Team (VPAT) led the workshop, in which the participants examined the details of last year’s Commonwealth Accountability Testing System (CATS) exams and talked about trends they noticed. The VPAT, composed of school board members and educators from around the state, has been working with the school district to improve its test scores since August 2006 when the previous year’s No Child Left Behind Scores were below what was required by the federal law.
School board members, board employees, principals and SBDM council members gathered in the middle school cafeteria at six o’clock last Thursday night for a meal of chicken cordon bleu, which the schools’ meal service furnished. Lovell greeted the crowd, attempting to liven them.
“Let’s lighten things up,” he said after Superintendent Tim McGinnis introduced him. “Aren’t you excited to be her and look at test scores?”
