Brown says those failing grades in 3 – 8 went up from 1,358 to 5,853 from 2019-2020 to this school year.
She says in math and ELA (English Language Arts), failing grades in 3 – 8 increased to approximately 20%.

While just a snapshot of the school systems, the update was given to help school board members understand how COVID-19 and hybrid face-to-face and remote learning have impacted students and academic success.
The Teaching & Learning Department noted that the report was incomplete and was a data snapshot.
The report did not reflect high school performance data, growth and learning information, and/or how data might compare to other school districts across the state.
