Acting Secretary Ruzkowski recently upheld the Hearing Officer’s recommendation and ordered that the EVCA charter be renewed for 5 years rather than the 3 years approved by the Public Education Commission on February 21. This is good news for the school and for continuing and expanding upon quality educational options in New Mexico.
In fact, as you can seen in the chart below, the EVCA’s PARCC test results just came out so the following is a comparison of EVCA’s PARCC results compared side by side with the NM statewide results and the Moriarty Edgewood School District results. (Most EVCA 8th graders took Algebra I last year rather than Math 8, hence too few tests to show a score) It would appear that the non charter schools could learn from the EVCA classical model. Enrollment at the school will be over 500 this year in K-12.
We are thrilled to know that EVCA’s charter has been renewed and strongly believe that the school’s results will merit expansion to other corners of our State.
