   Dashboard Points to Success
The Dashboard for the Genoa-Kingston Community Unit School
District 424 involves the collection of data points that serve as
indicators of progress for the Board of Education and school
community. This process was undertaken to demonstrate a level
of accountability and to create a system that improves through
the use of data in determining the direction of the School
District as we continue to strive for educational excellence.

The dashboard has three overall areas that can be reviewed:
 Demographics include general information regarding the make-
up of the District.
 Curriculum projects and advancements for the 2011-2012
school year.
Achievements of our students and staff.

Celebrating our Accomplishments

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) provides
  willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to
  take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to
  earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful
  performance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than
  1.8 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a
  sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
Two students from Genoa-Kingston High School have earned AP
  Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on
  AP Exams. These two students qualified for the AP Scholars Award
  by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher.
The AP Scholars from Genoa-Kingston High School are:
                 Arylle Hansen and Jordan Pennington
