STX DISTRICT RECOGNIZED 250 STUDENTS AT SHINING STARS CELEBRATION

 

The Virgin Islands Department of Education, St. Croix District Office of the Insular Superintendent recognized 250 students at its Shining Stars Celebration on Sunday, March 24, 2019, at the Alfredo Andrews Elementary School.

The ceremony recognized students in public elementary, junior high and senior high schools who scored the highest or made a significant improvement on the 2018 Fall Smarter Balanced Assessment.

Acting Insular Superintendent Carlos McGregor expressed how the beneficial the assessment is to schools.

“The more shining stars (students) we see at these celebrations, the more resources from our federal government we’ll receive for our schools; from computers, to Promethean boards to laptops and professional development trainings.”

Superintendent McGregor took time to acknowledge Board of Education member Maureen Moorehead who was present and Senator Alicia Barnes who shared some supporting words.

“I would like to commend the Department of Education, the administrators, teachers, faculty and staff for all that you do to empower, and educate the best and most important resource in the Virgin Islands; our students.” She continued, “It is very important that we stress the academic excellence in our students,” said Senator Barnes.

Barnes not only came as a senator to show support but also as a parent, as her daughter, Nia Sylvester exceeded state achievement standards on the Assessment.

St. Croix District Director of Data and Assessments Dr. Saul Santiago expressed his satisfaction with the students’ performance and gave some background on how the Smarter Balanced Assessment is configured.

“As the District Director of Data and Assessments, I couldn’t be more proud of these students and their achievements,” he said. 

“The two highest levels on the assessment are proficient and advanced. Proficient students meet the achievement standards for their grade level. But the students being recognized here today went beyond their grade level! They were advanced in Math or the English/Language Arts.”

The same Smarter Balanced Assessment students took are administered to all schools across the nation. 

“Out of the 2,300 students who took the exams last fall in St. Croix, this group represents the top 10 percent in our district.”

Dr. Santiago continued by acknowledging and commending the students who may not have scored advanced but has shown significant growth.

“We’re also honoring students who are not necessarily advanced but have made significant progress on the Smarter Balanced Assessment. These students and their teachers have shown how hard work and perseverance can translate into remarkable results in academics.”

The ceremony continued with the recognition of students. Schools were called up individually, and students received a certificate, a medal, and a pin. Light refreshments were available for students and families following the ceremony.
