Improvements in math and graduation rate: Those were the two things Director of Schools Gary Aytes said he was most proud of about Roane County Schools 2012 state report card.
In the academic growth category, Roane County received a C in math in 2011.
In 2012 the county scored an A.
The graduation rate went from 78.2 percent in 2011 to 88.8 percent in 2012.
“That’s tremendous,” Aytes said.
Aytes said the disappointments were in reading/language, science and the ACT.
