Rome and Floyd County students in the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades did extremely well in reading and English on this year’s Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests — or CRCTs — according to results released by the state department of education Tuesday.
More than 90 percent of the students who took the test in each of the four county middle schools either met or exceeded the state’s standard in reading and English Language Arts. The lowest percentage was 92.4 for Pepperell Middle School’s sixth grade ELA scores.
A perfect 100 percent of Model Middle School eighth graders met or exceeded the standard on the reading test while 99.5 percent of the school’s sixth graders and 98.5 percent of the seventh graders did as well.
“The board and myself couldn’t be more proud of all of our scores,” Floyd County Schools Superintendent Jeff McDaniel said. “We are extremely proud of our teachers and administrators. They have been laser-focused on student achievement throughout the year and to produce results like this is humbling.”
