Houston County leading the way in state school scores

A term everyone in education is just getting accustomed to is the College and Career Ready Performance Index. Its precursor was No Child Left Behind, a system with its Adequate Yearly Progress report. Once again, Houston County is leading the way. Seventeen of the system’s 23 elementary schools surpassed the state average of 78.5. Five elementary schools scored 90 and above. Only one middle school did not exceed the state average of 74.6 and at the high school level, where the state average score is 73.5, three schools exceeded that score. One, Veterans High School, scored 13.5 points above the state average score.
