The William S. Hart Union School District has released the California Department of Education preliminary results of district performance in the California Smarter Balanced Assessments in English Language Arts and Math.

California Science Test results have also been released.

The test scores reflect the academic performance of students in California during the challenging period of the pandemic. As mirrored throughout the county, state and across the nation, student assessment results have declined in several areas. Despite the declines during this period of COVID disruptions, the Hart District continues to outperform both Los Angeles County and the State of California.

“Pandemic disruptions presented countless challenges for students, staff, and families of the Hart District,” said Hart District Superintendent Kuhlman. “Despite the dedicated work of our community members, student assessment results have shown some declines as compared with previous “normal” school years. Although we are disappointed with these results, we believe this is a temporary trend that will be reversed through intervention strategies. Regardless, we will use these results, along with other measures, to guide our instruction and gauge our progress. We are proud of the pockets of growth achieved in spite of the many disruptions and lost learning time. We will implement elements of our new Strategic Plan to help accelerate the learning of students in order to ensure that Every Student graduates Opportunity Ready.”
