The report card is in – Zanesville City School District is making the grade.

Director of Instructional Services Linda Phillips said Zanesville City School District received a "continuous improvement" rating.  She said this is the same score as last year, but significant progress has been made.

"Last year we had 7 of the 26 indicators, and this year we have 12, so last year we had 27%, and this year we have 46% of the indicators," said Phillips.

Phillips said the district added fourth grade reading, eighth grade reading and eleventh grade reading, science and social studies.  She said teacher interaction is responsible for the improvements.

"We work in every building, we meet every morning and teach a professional learning community," said Phillips.  "We look at our assessments and what our students are learning."

Phillips said several Zanesville City Schools also improved their ratings from last year.  Four schools are rated "effective" and two are rated "continuous improvement".  The full report card will be released to the public on August 24th.
