Despite the shorter calendar for the school year that just ended, Barrow County’s elementary school students did better on this spring’s Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests than their predecessors did a year ago.
Middle school students struggled, however, with failure rates rising in three of five subject areas for sixth graders and in four of five areas for eighth graders.
The Georgia Department of Education released statewide and school systems’ overall scores, by grade level, on Tuesday. Individual school scores will be available by July 10.
