Student test results released

The results are out about how schools throughout the state are doing when it comes to the federal No Child Left Behind program.

In Kentucky, 60% of schools met their educational goals last school year.

That number is down from 73% the year before.

In Fayette County, none of the district's high schools made year-to-year gains.

However, Superintendent Stu Silberman points out that for the first time, Fayette County is now ranked the 9th highest in the states. He credits teachers with making that happen.

School officials say they are concerned about William Wells Brown Elementary, where test scores fell five points from the previous year.

The numbers are based on Kentucky Core Content Test results in math and reading, which students took last spring.
