Daniel High report card score rises

CENTRAL — Daniel High School’s absolute report card rating, announced earlier this month by the South Carolina Department of Education, was reported as lower than it should have been, state officials said.
State DOE officials announced last Thursday that the school was one of 15 across the state that will see their scores increase due to a “rounding error.”

Daniel’s Absolute rating on the 2010 report card has been upgraded from Good to Excellent, officials said.
DOE officials said the school’s rating of 3.399, along with 14 others around the state, should have been rounded up to 3.40, the minimum score to obtain an Excellent mark.
