Exhibit 4.2.15 shows us that:
Clover Park School District 12th graders performed below the state and national averages on the SAT math test each year from 1997 to 2000.
Neither Clover Park nor Lakes High Schools scored above the median national or state performance levels on the SAT math during the 1997 through 2000 timeframe.
In summary, analysis of Clover Park School District student performance on the Washington Assessment of Student Learning, Iowa Tests of Basic Skills/Iowa Test of Educational Development, and SAT confirms that overall student performance in the Clover Park School District is below state and national averages. This pattern has existed for several years and while there has been some variation in performance from year-to-year, the trend has been one of decline rather than improvement. On only 26 of 79 Advanced Placement tests administered during the last four years did half or more of the students taking a particular test achieve a score of “3” or higher on the subject tested.
