Davenport Schools Hiring Math Help



Students in Davenport Elementary schools are getting some extra coaching when it comes to math.  The school board voted to approve a plan to use money from the general fund to hire four full-time math coaches to assist with the district's students and schools.

The four positions are only for a year. This request from the superintendent comes after the board received the results of the Iowa assessment tests.

Dr. Tate said while the elementary schools improved in reading, math scores went down. The intermediate school scores were up due to students receiving 15 minutes of daily focused math instruction on problems found on the tests.

Three of the coaches will be used at the elementary schools, while the fourth will be used at the intermediate and high schools.
