Posted August 25, 2013

The Wheatley campus got moved to Palestine campus this year. The students do not have technology in their room now that they have been moved to Palestine, the classroom teachers just have whiteboards to teach off of. Even thou there is technology available it has not been installed. This school should install the technology with your help I believe that it would be possible. The teachers do not complain they do with what they got. The school is a small rural school in the delta and they have trouble retaining teachers with the grant they would be able to get the necessary materials and technology need to teach our children.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arkansas used the Benchmark Exam to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in literacy and grades 3 through 8 in math. The Benchmark Exam is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Arkansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
