GMSD named an Exemplary District by the State

Germantown Municipal School District has been named as an Exemplary District for 2014-2015.  Only twelve school districts in the State were chosen.

An exemplary district, as defined by the State, is a district that is able to meet three criteria:

  • Meet the majority of their Achievement targets
  • Meet the majority of their Gap Closure targets
  • Ensure every subgroup—e.g.: Students with Disabilities, racial minorities, and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds—moves forward in half or more of its target areas.

“We believe these districts are models for our work across the state. They all face different challenges and have different best practices to share,” Education Commissioner Candice McQueen said. “We look forward to learning from both our Exemplary Districts and Reward Schools throughout the school year.”
