ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty County School Board reviewed an in-depth data analysis of C-R-C-T for 2012.

Former board member David Maschke presented the data tracking each school's progress in various C-R-C-T subject areas. 

The report indicates stronger readers in fourth and fifth grades at all schools... and stronger English and language arts scores for fifth graders at all schools.

Some downfalls include a significant decrease in the number of students passing fifth grade social studies at Live Oak Elementary school.

"Particularly when you see kids scoring high in the first and second grade and then you see those scores dropping in the third fourth and fifth grades it is definitely disturbing so I think we need to do an in depth analysis to find out what the problem is because we definitely have a problem," said Carol Tharin, school board chairman.

The report suggests school principals should be called in to explain the scores and retention rates and identify high performing and low performing teachers at their schools so that the proper actions can be taken.
