SAT Math - Rigor and Scores of 700 and Above:
In his latest blog post, Boise School District Superintendent Dr. Don Coberly analyzes how Advanced Placement course offerings in the District are helping Boise Schools earn more than one-third of Idaho's SAT math scores of 700+ with having just 9% of Idaho's students.  His blog, Data Points, is dedicated to providing student achievement and education trend analysis and is available through Google Sites, or you can read it here or click on the Data Points image.  The blog is intended for parents and patrons interested in an objective, data-driven look at student performance in Boise and across Idaho.
