February 13, 2012 11:14 pm
Today’s New York Times examines how the Mooresville (NC) school district has used technology and digital learning to boost graduation rates from 80 percent in 2008 to 91 percent in 2011 and raise student proficiency on reading, math, and science tests from 73 percent to 88 percent. Those numbers are good enough to rank Mooresville second in the state in graduation rates and third in test scores while ranking 100th out of 115 school districts in dollars spent per student ($7,415.89 a year).
As part of the Digital Learning Day National Town Hall, the Alliance profiled four school districts from around the country that are using digital learning to boost student outcomes. One of the districts was Mooresville Graded School District in North Carolina.
