    Dear Yates Elementary School Families: Our entire team of teachers, school staff and leaders at Yates Elementary School is committed to helping all children succeed. We monitor their academic progress regularly with classroom assessments, MAP tests, observations and student work so that we can support them individually in areas where they struggle and accelerate their learning in areas of strength. Beginning at the end of third grade, elementary school students in Kentucky take state tests annually to determine if they have mastered the content they are expected to learn each year. Based on their performance on those tests, the Kentucky Department of Education rates each school.
