Adel -- Some students at Cook County High School had a substitute teacher Monday, State School Superintendent Kathy Cox.
Cox says it was the first time she's visited Cook County High since being elected in 2002.
After teaching a economics class, she met with teachers and toured the school. She says visiting high schools is crucial in her goal to improve graduation rates, test scores, and school standards across the state.
"That's the thing about adequate yearly progress. It's a moving target and we have to keep getting better and better until we hit that 100 percent mark of all of our students hitting grade level proficiency."
She says despite raising the bar in AYP testing, she expects to see an increase in school performances over the next few years.
