1) 627 out of 635
If the only source of information you had about East Ramapo was the district itself or its cheerleaders (sometimes called ‘monitors’) you might be pleased with all the wonderful progress being made. The truth is there are many exceptionally talented children in our schools, and all our families have hopes and dreams for a bright future for their children. We should celebrate the hard work of the children and the staff. We must also take a hard look at how successful the district is in achieving its main function which is that children should become proficient in the core subjects.
The NY State Education Department has released Regents results for the 21-22 school year, and the results for East Ramapo are shocking, if not unexpected. Of 635 districts, East Ramapo came in at 627. Only 55% of the students were rated as proficient. In contrast, no other Rockland district had less than 90% proficient.
