You may recall that the accreditation benchmark for reading is a 75% pass rate. VDOE cooks the accreditation numbers so thoroughly that the 75% criterion may be interesting as a rule of thumb but it is meaningless as to which schools actually get accredited. You’ll notice that none of the mainstream middle schools and far too few of the elementary schools made 75% this year. Indeed, King went from unspeakably bad to worse, never mind anything to do with 75%.
For another, perhaps more useful, measure, the statewide average reading pass rate was 79.0.
Franklin has both middle and high school grades so I’ve included it in both lists, although its scores can’t be directly compared to either.
Carver continued its spectacular performance, leading among the (only) six elementary schools to beat 75%.
Next the math data. Recall that the accreditation criterion is 70%. The state average pass rate this year was 79.4.
Notice the decreases at Open and Marshall, as well as the uniformly miserable pass rates of the middle schools. Note the several elementary schools doing pretty well, led again by Carver.
