SCHOOLS GET HIGH MARKS FROM STATE
STEAMBOAT SPRINGSSteamboat Springs School District received high marks for its first every report card.
All four of the district schools were awarded the accountability rating of high in results the state released on Thursday.
The ratings were part of Colorado's School Accountability Reports, a statewide program that compares schools based on third- to tenth-grade CSAP scores and ACTs scores of juniors taken last year.
With those scores averaged by school, each school was given a rating of "excellent," "high," "average," "low" or "unsatisfactory."
