Carlisle High recognized for Hispanic student achievement


Carlisle High School was among five schools honored today by the State Board of Education for their work to raise achievement among groups of students who traditionally face challenges in the classroom. The Breaking Barriers to Teaching and Learning Award was created by the board to annually recognize successful efforts to eliminate achievement gaps. This year’s award winners were recognized for having the highest proficiency rates statewide in math and reading among a specific subgroup of students, such as students whose first language is not English and students from low-income backgrounds. Carlisle High was honored for its work with its Hispanic students, who at that school are 98 proficient in reading and math. That compares with a statewide average of 66 percent for the same group of students. State assessment results from the last three years were examined to confirm a positive trend for each school.
