RTHS board meeting (Updated)

An increase in test scores along with a decline in enrollment numbers topped the discussion last night for the Rochelle Township High School board.

School officials got a good report from Principal Travis McGuire on the Prairie State Achievement Exam and the Advanced Placement scores.

The district saw an increase between 3 to 8 percent in Reading, Math, and Science for the PSA Exams. 78 students also took the Advance Placement Exam in which 73 percent passed. That's an increase of 6 percent from a year ago.

The Board approved the bike path easement on the far south end of the west property. The path will be extended to the corner of Flagg Road and 20th Street at the  pedestrian crossing.

The RTHS enrollment totals 929, 20 fewer students that a year ago. The Freshmen class has the highest number at 255 students. Superintendent Jamie Craven said that enrollment in the district will have an impact on a number of things which includes state aid and staff.

2 programs will be held for students on November 12th involving Veteran's day. Several local veterans will speak to the teens.

A mock election for the school will also be held on October 30th dealing with the Presidential Candidates.
