ALBANY, GA (WALB) –   It looks like state monitors will not oversee CRCT retesting next week in Dougherty County schools.

The state sent monitors to watch last month's testing in schools that had high numbers of wrong answers changed to right answers.

CRCT Boot Camps started this week for students who will retest next week. School officials say some schools have added up individual student scores to get a rough idea where they stand, but the numbers aren't final. So far, the schools Testing Coordinator expects Dougherty County scores to be comparable with last year's.

"To me the scores seem to be about par, they're doing fine in Language arts and reading we're still struggling a little bit in mathematics the AMO was raised from 59.5 to 67.6 percent but I'm seeing kids who really scored well," said Renee Bridges, DCSS testing Coordinator.

School Officials say they'll get updated score information next week. System wide and state scores won't be available until June. Bridges also told us many students made perfect scores in various areas of testing in grades one through eight.
