CSAP scores are out, those are the tests to assess how students and their schools are doing at meeting state standards.
This year District 20 on the north end of Colorado Springs scored very well. Among large schools District 20 has the highest percentage of students scoring proficient or better.
"We're pleased but never satisfied until every student is successful to their greatest potential. Then we're not going to be satisfied," Todd Morse, Director of Assessment.
District 20 also countered a statewide trend. Its 8th grade assessment of writing improved while across the state the average dropped.
Pueblo, District 60 was below the state average for students testing proficient or above in more than half the grade and subject categories. The spokesman for District 60 says they matched up well to other school districts with low income students.
District 70 tested above the state averages in all but three grade and subject categories. District 70s spokeswoman said the district was proud to have closed the gender gap in math and science scores.
