Close the Achievement Gap(s) Among All Groups

  • Westonka's goal is that the proficiency gap between our lowest non-special education student groups, free/reduced lunch and our white student ethnic group will decrease by 3 percentage points from the 2016-2017 to 2017-2018 school year in reading, math and science, as measured by the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments in reading, math and science.
