student-reading-book-small.jpg(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Newly released results of Indiana’s I-READ 3 test show most southeast Indiana 3rd graders are good readers, but some schools are having more success than others.

The Indiana Department of Education released the results of spring I-READ 3 testing for each public elementary school in the state on Tuesday. The release follows statewide data released earlier in April which showed 85.58 percent of Indiana’s 3rd graders passed the evaluation, up from 85.28 percent last year.

IREAD-3 debuted in Indiana in 2012 after state lawmakers passed House Enrolled Act 1367 requiring that 3rd graders pass the evaluation before advancing to the 4th grade. Remediation is offered to students who do not pass the test, according to the IDOE.

Among local public schools, Jac-Cen-Del Elementary had the highest pass rate at 100 percent of its 3rd graders, up from last year’s 90.3 percent. The lowest local pass rate was at Switzerland County Elementary Schools at 80.6 percent, an increase of 0.7 percent.

Three area private schools saw their 3rd graders achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the reading evaluation. They were St. Lawrence School in Lawrenceburg, St. Mary School in Aurora, and St. Louis School in Batesville.

I-READ 3 results for all area schools are shown in the tables below. Corporation-wide results are shown for school districts with more than one school housing 3rd grade students.
