Congratulations to Bayyari Teachers and Students!

We compared MAP Growth test scores from this year's Winter testing period with last year's Winter testing period. In every grade level, we had more students meet their growth goal than last year. Overall, there were 71 more students that met their Winter MAP Reading goal this year than last year and 88 more students that met their Winter MAP Math goal this year than last year. Great job teachers and students! Keep up the hard work and let's have even more students make their growth goals during Spring testing!
