Daly Elementary not a focus school

Meeting in regular session Wednesday the Fayette R-III Board of Education Daly Elementary Principal Cheri Huster shared with the Board that Daly Elementary is no longer identified as a focus school! A surprise assembly was held to make the announcement to the staff and students, and to celebrate. In 2012 Daly was identified as a focus school due to MAP scores and a discrepancy in the achievement from a super sub-group and the overall student academic achievement scores. The teachers and staff worked hard to increase the overall achievement of all students at Daly Elementary. Huster reported an enrollment of 66 in Preschool and 275 in K-5th grades.
