Lynnville-Sully was the only school district in Jasper County to receive an “Exceptional” rating in the 2017 School Report Card report from the Iowa Department of Education. In fact…the District received two of the highest ratings possible. Superintendent Shane Ehresman.

Superintendent Ehresman credits the staff and the entire Lynnville-Sully community for the achievement.

The State Department of Education believes the district has work to do at the elementary level. Lynnville-Sully elementary was rated “Commendable” last year. This year the school was identified as “Needs Improvement”. Superintendent Ehresman explains what’s behind part of the drop.

Ehresman notes the elementary staff has been working on this for several months now.

All three Lynnville-Sully schools had overall scores on the report card that were lower than last year. The High School score this year was 75.1, compared to 77.1 a year ago. The Middle School dropped from 76.5 last year, to 73.5 this year. This year’s elementary score is 57.2….down from 69.3.
