Hoping to put students in a better position to increase academic performance, the Le Sueur-Henderson School District is increasing the rigor of classes in the district’s middle school and high school.
At a recent school board meeting, Nicole Adams, principal at the middle school and high school, presented the board with a report that included details on efforts to make classes for sixth-graders through high school seniors more challenging. The district also wants to offer more difficult classes, the Le Sueur News-Herald recently reported.
Adams is also working to make sure the schools’ curricula is properly aligned with state standards. Making sure the classes are properly aligned with state standards should increase rigor and help Le Sueur-Henderson students earn better scores on state tests.
