Friday, May 25, 2018 - 10:48am

The State Department of Education released the 3rd Grade English Language Arts (ELA) scores Thursday afternoon. Superintendent James Tager wanted to share some of the highlights from the report, saying "This gives us great insight into how our 3rd graders are performing. It also allows us to get vital reading help to those who need it through our summer reading camp."

  • Overall, 62% of Flagler County 3rd graders scored a "3" or higher. This puts Flagler Schools 22nd out of 67 districts. As a comparison, Volusia County's rate was 56%, putting them 40th.
  • Old Kings Elementary School had 22% Level 5 students. This is the highest level. It is higher than the 9% state average and is an 11% increase over last year's score.
  • Rymfire Elementary had 9% Level 1 students. The state average is 20%.
  • Bunnell Elementary School 3rd graders maintained their 12% Level 5 students, which, again is higher than the 9% state average.
