Jordan School Makes AYP, Centralia City School Board Approves Tentative Tax Levy

By Will Doolin, WJBD News

The Jordan Grade School gave their progress report to the Centralia City School Board at Tuesday's board meeting.  Principal Craig Bland reports the school did make adequate yearly progress last year.  The school received a score of 80.3-percent in reading, an increase from 78.6-percent in 2011.  However the school's math school decreased slightly from 100-percent in 2011 to 98-percent.  The school has 239 students enrolled, with about 75-percent of students having low income.

In Board action, the Board approved the 2012 tentative tax levy.  Superintendent Dave Rademacher reports while there are no official numbers yet, he expects there to be a 4.8-percent increase.  Rademacher says they are waiting on more solid numbers from Clinton, Washington, and Marion Counties.  A truth and taxation hearing will not be required.  The Board approved policy revisions and the consent agenda items.
