Dougherty County Schools have gotten back some of this year's CRCT scores, but not enough for a comprehensive look at how the system did as a whole.

The system does have individual student scores to give them an indication of who needs remediation and who can retest. Letters were sent home to parents with the students' scores Wednesday.

Testing Coordinator Renee Bridges is meeting with principals over the next two days to set up a retesting schedule for next week. By Friday, she may have a better idea where individual classes stand.

"The data that's out now, we do have grades for every student in the system, but we don't have it in a manageable means to report how a particular school might be doing or how the system as a whole is doing," said DCSS Public Information Officer R. D. Harter.

The system will get their Adequate Yearly Progress and certified CRCT results the first week of July. Summer school begins as early as May 25th. The system will hold a CRCT Book Camp for students in grades 3, 5, and 8 who failed Reading and math.
