While Sioux Falls School District students outscored their state peers in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Math in the Smarter Balanced assessments, there is still room for improvement in all areas of student achievement.
More than 99% of District students participated in the Smarter Balanced assessment in 2016. More Sioux Falls School District students score proficient or advanced in both ELA and Math than their state-wide peers and the level of growth over the previous year also out-paces state and national rates. Sioux Falls students have better attendance rates than the state average, but attendance still needs to improve. The graduation rate in Sioux Falls is below the state average and fell slightly from 2015. The high school completion rate is also below the state average. District students are better prepared for college than their state-wide peers based on readiness measures provided in the report.
As school Performance Index (SPI) indicators continue to fluctuate and schools were not moved into different categories from 2015, Sioux Falls continues to have three Exemplary schools, three Status schools, 24 Progressing schools, three Focus schools, two Priority schools and one Small school. The District will use the data from the Smarter Balanced assessment and the state report card to continue to help students achieve success.
