Putnam County schools recently received preliminary Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) scores, and they reveal pass rate improvement in three out of five subjects.

The strongest pass rates occur in reading, English language arts and mathematics, but science and social studies pass rates fall far short of the school board’s goals.

Assistant Superintendent Beth Bacon said administrators are encouraged by the strong pass rates and methods schools have implemented to improve student achievement.

“We feel real good about the pre/posttesting and the new Georgia Performance Standards rollout,” she said. “But we also see that science is an area that we’re going to need to work on. GPS standards have just rolled out in our science, and we didn’t get as much pre/post testing done in our science and social studies classes.”
