CAPT scores appear good

I haven't had a chance to analyze them, but it appears that Bristol students did well on last spring's CAPT tests.
The fourth and seventh grade classes posted particularly solid gains in every subject (math, reading and writing).
Only third graders, who saw math and writing scores sink, failed to show overall improvement.
Of course, details matter so we'll know more as the results are broken down by race, sex, individual schools and more. At first glance, though, it looks good for Bristol.

Sounds like something positive about Bristol so that may be why no one has posted to this news???

Well, I guess there's no way to give this a bad spin and blame Ward, so they've got nothing to say.

Congratulations on the CAPT scores Bristol! Keep up the good work.

Imagine how much better our scores will be after we get the new Mega Schools.

This is not a Ward thing, or a Stortz thing, or a Couture thing: it is a combined ONGOING effort and committment to a better education system in Bristol,

Keep up the good work everyone. We shouldn't let up now.
