GARNETT — Anderson County USD 365 students showed improvements in state tests this year. Students scoring proficient or better increased more than 11 percent in reading and more than 19 percent in math, Superintendent Don Blome said. Mont Ida School led the other buildings in the district with scores of 100 percent proficiency in both math and reading. District officials said they were especially pleased with improvements at Garnett Elementary Center. In 2008, GEC failed to meet at least one proficiency standard. Blome told the Anderson County Review that students, teachers and administrators worked hard to improve test scores. Kansas tests public school students each year to see that they meet state standards geared to the federal No Child Left Behind act. All students must meet proficiency standards by 2014.
