Jackson County Middle School is happy to share with the community that it has reached a milestone in its performance on the statewide assessment, K-PREP. During the May 2017 administration of K-PREP, all grades and students at JCMS participated. Today, the Kentucky Department of Education has released the results of that assessment.
The 2017 K-PREP score showed significant gains in all areas. The largest area of growth was in the area of Gap Reduction. Gap Reduction from 2016 to 2017 showed gains of 46.4%. Novice Reduction was also an area of growth of 10.4% between the two assessment years.
