Educators make changes at local high school

Teachers are making changes at Sheldon Clark High School after the state named it a "persistently low-achieving school."

The school in Martin County has not met, “No Child Left Behind” adequate yearly progress requirements in the past three years.

Administrators made changes in scheduling and are using new ways to motivate students.

Teachers are giving students tests similar to state testing to determine areas for improvement.

“I think our teachers will meet the challenge head on. We realize we take responsibility for what we've done poorly. We're also very proud of what we did well, but also take responsibility for what we've done and we're going to change that,” Sheldon Clark High School Principal Robbie Fletcher said.

School leaders say the students have already shown high ACT test score gains this year.
