Fayette County Test Scores Improving

Fayette County Public Schools are improving, according to test scores released Friday morning.

This is the second year that the new K-Prep scoring system has been used.

This year FCPS moved up to the “proficient” category.

The district scored 59.8 out of a possible 100 points and ranks 62nd out of 174 districts.

This places them in the 82nd percentile.

These numbers are up from last year when FCPS was only in the 69th percentile and in the “needs improvement” category.

Some results remained very similar to last year. Veterans Park Elementary and SCAPA are both still listed in the top 10 schools in the state.

Beaumont Middle had the ninth highest middle school scores, Cassidy Elementary with the 20th highest elementary scores and Glendover Elementary with the 22nd highest elementary scores.

Many schools also saw drastic jumps in their scores, including Deep Springs Elementary, which had a 10 point gain. It was deemed a “high progress” school because it advanced so quickly.

High schools across the district also saw significant improvement in almost all categories this year.

Among the lowest performing schools were William Wells Brown Elementary School, with the eight lowest scores and Booker T. Washington Intermediate Academy with the 19th lowest scores among elementary schools.

Crawford Middle had the 17th lowest middle school scores in the state.

Overall, out of 51 public schools in Fayette County, 14 were “distinguished”, 13 were “proficient” and 24 were in the “needs improvement” category.
