BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) — Six Youngstown elementary students will be cruising on new sets of wheels thanks to their testing results on achievement tests.
Paul C. Bunn Elementary Principal William Baun awarded two fourth, fifth and sixth graders with new bikes on Monday.
The giveaway was part of an incentive program to encourage all students to do well on the Ohio Achievement Assessments. For each portion students pass, their name were entered into a drawing.
Baun said since the program started, more students are passing.
“We’ve also seen the kid’s scores increasing too. They maybe have been proficient, and they’re advanced or accelerated or maybe they were below proficient and they’re proficient,” said Baun. “We do see scores going in the right direction.”
The principal held the drawing last week in order to purchase the perfect bike to match the winners.
