Lower score for Santa Fe prep school fixed after data error
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A Santa Fe district-chartered school has had its state grade for 2016-17 raised from a “B″ to an “A″ after a data error led to a miscalculation.
The New Mexico Public Education Department made the change for the Academy for Technology and the Classics.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the college-preparatory school that serves nearly 400 students in grades 7-12 now has logged its fifth straight “A″ since the state implemented the school grading system in 2012-13.
Santa Fe Public Schools reportedly failed to submit some information to the state regarding ATC students’ participation in the rigorous Advanced Placement classes as well as scores on end-of-year AP tests.
That data improved ATC’s score in a category measuring its success at preparing students for college and careers following graduation.
