Year after year, the teachers at Frankford Elementary have used test data to adjust their instruction and prepare students to achieve high levels on the Delaware state assessment. The past eight years of data show that Frankford’s students have exhibited continuous growth, highlighted by the 2004–2005 results, where 100 percent of third- and fifth-grade students met standards on the Delaware state reading assessment and roughly 94 percent met standards in math. In fall 2005, 98 percent of Frankford students met standards in science. Working with a diverse population that includes 38 percent Hispanic and 27 percent African-American students, the administration and staff meet each quarter with every classroom teacher to discuss and monitor every child’s progress.
