VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

New numbers are now out, showing how well Valdosta and other surrounding school districts are performing.
 
Valdosta's performance scores dropped for elementary, middle, and high school from 2012 to 2013. Other school districts, such as Echols County, increased in all three categories from 2012 to 2013.

Both school districts say these numbers are very helpful.

"The biggest takeaway is that we've just got to increase the percentage of our students that excel," said Scarlet Brown, Valdosta City Schools' Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning.

"We'll just take 'em and teachers will start digestin' 'em on an individual basis and work on a plan for each child and see how we can improve for next year," Tim Ragan, Echols County Superintendent, explained.
