Easton Area School District’s youngest students excelled this year, with 91% hitting their benchmarks at the end of the year, a growth of 40% from the beginning of the year. Last year, 88% of students hit their benchmarks by the end of the year, compared with 73% the prior year. No school was below the 85% mark this year.

Tracy Piazza, the district’s director for teaching and learning for kindergarten through fifth grade, said the growth could be attributed to a number of factors, including the staggered rollout of full-day kindergarten starting in 2015 and intensive training and professional development with a consulting firm to personalize learning for students.
