Early data shows reading improvement in Youngstown schools

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Youngstown City School CEO Krish Mohip is citing preliminary information from the Ohio Department of Education as proof that what is being done in the district is working.

Preliminary data shows a 7 percent increase in third-grade reading results, according to Mohip.

“That’s a 10 percent reduction of the achievement gap and a 26 percent increase on the scaled score,” said Mohip.

The scores on the state assessment in third-grade reading increased from 27 percent to 34 percent in overall proficiency.

“This demonstrates what our children can accomplish when supported with quality, targeted instruction led by skilled and committed teachers and principals and informed by data,” Mohip said.

Mohip credits the improvement to teachers, principals, staff, students and parents.
