During spring break, we received notification of our preliminary TAKS scores for 3rd, 5th, and 8th grade reading. These are called preliminary scores because these scores include all students, regardless of when the arrived in the district, and because students that did not pass the first time will have two additional opportunities to pass the reading test. If a student is successful on the second attempt, that student’s passing score is figured into our overall passing rate.
3rd Grade Reading – 94%
5th Grade Reading – 88%
8th Grade Reading – 88%
Overall, these are solid scores for each grade level. Currently, any student that was not successful on the first attempt is receiving extra help in during the school day and in after school or before school tutorials. Further information on TAKS scores will be made available when we receive it
