Hardin ISD Superintendent Scott Mackey shared some exciting news this week, as the district has seen some vast improvement at Hardin Elementary over the past year, even in the midst of COVID19.
“It is with great pleasure I announce the academic improvements at Hardin ISD, specifically at Hardin Elementary,” said Mackey.
Mackey continued, “Principal, Ronald Scott, and the faculty and staff at Hardin Elementary have been working overtime to prepare the campus and students to perform at the highest level. While many districts and campuses saw decline in student performance due to COVID, Hardin Elementary was able to show gains in all grade levels and subjects on STAAR assessments. “
This hard work has resulted in an ACCEPTABLE rating for the school as a result of the improvements in student performance, according to the Texas Education Agency.
Hardin Elementary had a better performance evaluation over the last year than 69% of the nearly 4,500 elementary schools in the state, ranking 1,415 according to schooldigger. com. On the whole Hardin ISD ranks 356 out of the 963 districts in Texas.
“Hardin ISD administration, the school board and the community are extremely proud of the accomplishments of our elementary campus and the district as a whole,” Mackey concluded, “Hardin ISD will continue to raise the bar so that students have the instruction and resources needed to be successful. These are the times that make you extremely proud to be a HARDIN HORNET.
