Exeter’s comprehensive plan pledges 3 academic goals

Dr. Eric Flamm, Director of Teaching and Learning, presented a draft of the Exeter Township School District’s 2021-24 comprehensive plan at last week’s committee of the whole meeting.

The plan aims to reach 3 academic benchmarks in the school district:

  • 100% of students proficient in literacy by the end of grade 3
  • 100% of students proficient in mathematics by the end of grade 7
  • 100% of students graduating on time

Superintendent Dr. Kimberly Minor said the grades defined by the proficiency goals are markers that define a student’s success based on comprehension of math or literacy.

The proposed final plan will be viewable by the public starting on April 21 and would be voted on by the board at the May 24 voting meeting. Flamm indicated the plan is submitted to the state in November.
