All Quay County schools but one received passing grades on Thursday as the state’s 2014 school grading results were released by the New Mexico Public Education Department.
Under half of the schools in Quay County maintained their school grades from 2013. San Jon Elementary made the largest drop from a C to an F, while Logan high school was able to maintain an A for a second year.
Schools that dropped a grade level in Quay County but are still considered passing are: Logan Elementary, C; House Middle School, D; and San Jon Middle School, D.
This is the third year New Mexico schools have been graded by the guidelines of the state’s school accountability system that replaced the federal Adequate Yearly Progress system.
