Moline School Board officials say they’re pleased with the achievement progress for all students in the district.

District officials discussed a report of student achievement from the 2012-2013 school year at the school board meeting Monday, July 22, 2013.

Superintendent Dr. David Moyer said they have seen growth across the board.  “Sometimes, the students who experience the most difficulties don’t grow and experience the same learning gains as other students, but we’re seeing that all of our students are progressing so we’re very happy about that,” Moyer said.

The school board also approved the budget for the 2013-2014 school year at the meeting.

The board had to cut about $2-million from its budget in April.  Those cuts included eliminating 24 teaching positions.

Moyer says most students won’t notice any changes, except for high school students who won’t be able to take certain elective courses.
