Delta County received good news concerning their third grade reading scores on the 2012 TCAP exams demonstrating a steady trend of improvement. This year's third graders were 75 percent P/A (proficient/advanced) in reading compared to 74 percent P/A in 2011 and 73 percent in 2010.
The state has also shown progress during that time, but Delta County has consistently scored above state averages all three years.
Of particular note are two high scoring schools with North Fork Montessori scoring at 100 percent P/A for the third year in a row and Hotchkiss K8 scoring at 96 percent P/A for two years in a row. Four traditional schools scored above the state average of 74 percent, including Hotchkiss and Cedaredge Elementary at 84 percent P/A and Garnet Mesa, which tied Paonia Elementary at 81 percent P/A.
"Our third grade readers and their teachers and school administrators have done a super job," said Connie Vincent, district director of assessments.blog comments powered by Disqus
