Albert Lea Schools improve during latest state testing

ALBERT LEA, Minn. — Test scores are showing improvement in a local district.

Test results for Minnesota’s Multiple Measurements rating show the Albert Lea School District saw improvements in all their elementary schools.

Two of them, Lakeview and Sibley elementary, were noted as “reward” schools, both scoring over 90-percent.

School leaders say they’re seeing three years of work now paying off.

“We really have an opportunity to meet the needs of all of our students,” Albert Lea Superintendent Dr. Mike Funk said. “And the teachers, at Sibley in particular, did a great job. But, really throughout the elementary schools in the district, we are starting to see progress moving in the right direction.”

The multiple measurements rating is Minnesota’s way to measure school and student progress after the state received a waiver from the federal no child left behind law.
