State Report Card

Davie County Schools provides yearly summaries to you about your school by sending home a report card developed by the state. The NC School Report Card includes information about the school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, staffing, and suspensions and expulsions.

Significant accomplishments for 2018-19 include:

  • Davie County Schools showed strong growth, with 82% of schools meeting or exceeding growth expectations. 
  • Over one third of schools (36%) exceeded growth expectations, compared to 27.5% of schools that exceeded growth in the state. 
  • Two schools had very high growth compared to other schools in the state, with William Ellis Middle School ranking 12th highest in the state for overall growth out of over 2,500 schools in the state. Mocksville Elementary School was in the top 5% of elementary schools in the state for math growth. 
  • School Performance Grades are issued to each school and are based mostly on grade level proficiency (80%) with the rest made up of growth (20%). 
  • Two schools increased their letter grades from a C to a B – Cornatzer Elementary School and Pinebrook Elementary School. The rest stayed the same as previous years, with Davie County Early College High School earning an A, 50% of the remaining schools earning a B and 50% earning a C. The state reported 8% of overall schools earned an A, 29% earned a B, and 41% earned a C. Remaining schools in the state (22%) earned a D or F grade. 
  • Four-year graduation rates for Davie County Schools were slightly down from 87.3% in 2017-18 to 85.7% in 2018-19. The state graduation rate is 86.5%.

  • SAT scores ranked 13th in the state and #1 in the Piedmont-Triad region. 

 “We are proud of the growth our students showed for the 2018-19 school year and applaud our staff for a job well done,” said Superintendent Jeff Wallace. “There is always an opportunity to improve, working towards even higher scores and an increased graduation rate. With hard work from students and staff, our focus is on continued growth and we are positioned well for 2019-20. We appreciate all those who play an active role in developing the students of Davie County Schools.  Teachers, staff, parents and students work hard all year and while we put great value in the accountability testing, we know this is one test out of a full school year of lessons, work, projects and tests. We commend our students for their efforts and hard work all year long.”

State and local education leaders are committed to providing parents with more information about schools. Well-informed parents who participate in their children's education and school enhance the learning environment for students and educators alike. In addition, the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires schools to issue Report Cards.

We encourage you to visit the NC School Report Cards' website at www.ncpublicschools.org/src to see our district's Report Card. A paper version of the Report Card, the Snapshot, will be sent home. Our school district's report is also available on the Report Card website. School Report Cards are provided for regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools that were open during the 2018-19 school year.

Thank you for allowing us to share this Report Card with you and thank you for supporting our efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education. Your involvement is very important to our success and most importantly, to the success of your student(s).
