CRCT results are in for Bibb schools

Bibb County public schools got their students’ Criterion-Referenced Competency Test results in Tuesday, according to school officials.

Elementary and middle school students took the state-mandated exam last month. State law requires those in third, fifth and eighth grades to pass math or reading sections for promotion to the next grade level.

Beginning today, Bibb schools will start notifying parents, especially those in gateway grades, whether their child met standards. Those who didn’t meet standards can retake the CRCT on Tuesday and next Wednesday. Schools already had begun to remediate those at-risk.

“We just got them and we’re processing them like crazy,” said Bruce Giroux, Bibb’s director of testing.
