ADRIAN, MI (Toledo News Now) -

StudentACT scores are on the rise for the second year in a row in Adrian.

Adrianstudents scored an average of 20.1 – up more than two points from the last fewyears, and higher than the state average.

Districtofficials say these rising test scores are not just by luck, but a directresult of hard work done by both teachers and students. Superintendent ChrisTimmis says they've adjusted their curriculum, both in what students learn andwhen they learn it.

Healso says they've put new technology in the classrooms, increased rigor throughan international baccalaureate program, and they're working with students tohelp them understand the importance of the test and why they should take itseriously.

"Wewere one of the top ten schools for growth in Michigan last year, and we wentup again," Timmis said. "So to be able to look at and make that kind of growth,and sustain the growth, it really is a testament to the work of our teachers,our kids and our school administrators. They're doing a fantastic job."

Timmissays he expects test scores to rise again next year as more technology isintroduced into the classroom.
