EL Haynes Charter School Gets a New Sign

I like it even if it is only a banner. Speaking of EL Haynes, I’d like to congratulate them on some good math and reading improvements.

“E.L. Haynes Public Charter School made dramatic 19- and 18- percentage point gains in Math and Reading, respectively, on the 2008 DCCAS, reaching Adequate Yearly Progress and demonstrating the strength of its academic model. These gains outperformed the District’s already-impressive statewide gains by nearly 3-to-1 in Reading and nearly 2-to-1 in Math. E.L. Haynes also more than doubled the percentage of students scoring at Advanced levels in both categories; 25% of Haynes students are Advanced in Math.”
