Butler School District 53 had the highest rate – 80 percent – of students locally who passed the annual state assessments this year, according to a DuPage Policy Journal analysis of Illinois State Board of Education data.

Of the 42 districts in DuPage County, West Chicago Elementary School District 33 had the highest rate of students in the state who fell below standards on the annual tests with 82.9 percent.

Statewide, 34 percent of students met or exceeded expectations. The remaining 66 percent did not meet, partially met or approached expectations.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assesses a student’s aptitude in math and English language arts for elementary to junior level of high school and is based on the Common Core State Standard principles. Illinois is one of eight states participating in PARCC as a means to measure a student’s preparedness for higher education.

The scores – a composite derived from the combined results of the Math and English tests – reveal whether a student is or is not ready for the next level. Student scores either “did not meet,” “partially met,” “approach,” “met” or “exceeded” expectations. Any student who meets or exceeds expectations is considered ready for the next level.
