If approved by voters, the bond issue would not require any increase to the district's current tax rate.

Parkway Student Earns Perfect ACT Score

Morgan Tichy from West High School scored a 36 -- the highest possible composite score -- on the ACT college entrance exam.***** Of the approximately 16,000 students in Missouri who took the ACT test in June, only eight achieved a 36. In the United States, only 162 students out of about 410,000 who took the test scored a 36.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of four test scores. For purposes of comparison, the average composite score for the national high school graduating class of 2007 was 21.2. Parkway's class of 2007 scored well above the nation with an average composite score of 24.3, which was third-highest among 524 districts in the state.

Parkway Teachers Constantly Learning

On Friday, August 29, while students were sleeping in or getting an early start to the Labor Day weekend, Parkway staff participated in their first of four professional development days of the 2008-09 school year.*****Teachers—just as any other professionals—need to continually learn and update their practices as individual teachers and as teams.

Planning a day early in the school year, when state testing results have just been released, allowed some teachers to learn and share ways to use the new Parkway Access and Reporting System (PARS) to analyze data and elevate student achievement.

In addition, some teachers are learning about and planning for new state high school assessments called End of Course (EOC) exams. EOC exams will take the place of state MAP tests in core subjects such as Algebra I, English II and Biology. Parkway participated in field testing and planning prior to implementation in spring 2009.

If you have questions about Parkway's professional development programs, call (314) 415-5093. For more information on EOC exams and state assessments, visit
