Districts around state not reporting some students' WASL results

MILTON, Wash.—Brittany Vigoreaux is a statistical anomaly in the world of educational testing and the federal No Child Left Behind law.

As one of a dozen American Indian students at Fife High School, the 15-year-old's test scores are not reported to the federal government to illustrate whether her school is making adequate yearly progress.


Portland Community College President Preston Pulliams, left, and Marylhurst University President Nancy Wilgenbusch celebrate the recent agreement between their schools.

Officials from Portland Community College, Marylhurst University and Columbia Gorge and Tillamook Bay community colleges this week formalized a partnership to improve student access to undergraduate education.

The agreement helps students receive credit for classes they take at one college when they enter another college to further their education.
