CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- New data released Thursday shows improvement in test scores across the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools district.
The test results are a good indicator of how our local schools are performing as we kick off a new year.
For CMS, the graduation rate is up to 89.6-percent-- that marks the seventh straight year of improvement on that front. Although, only 52.8-percent of students are considered college and career-ready.
The number of schools that received an "F" deceased 50-percent from the year before, down to 5 from 10, while the number of schools that received an "A+" increased from 8 to 14.
CMS also outperformed the State and most other large districts in North Carolina.
However, not all tested subjects are showing improvement in proficiency rates; English II proficiency scores are down 6.2 points since 2014.
