District 27 Elementary Test Scores Up,
Middle School Scores Still In The Tank
By Howard Schwach

This year’s reading and mathematics scores, released this week by the New York City Board of Education, show some good news and some bad new for District 27 administrators.

Students in District 27 schools in Rockaway generally scored higher on this year’s fourth grade English Language Arts (ELA) test than those who took the test last year. Scores were up in six of the nine local schools tested. In one school, scores remained the same and in two of the schools (PS 197 and PS 225 in the Far Rockaway area), scores declined.

That is the good news. The bad news is that already low scores in many of Rockaway’s middle schools declined even more on the Eighth Grade ELA tests taken at the end of the last school year.

While reading scores went down in each of the Rockaway middle schools and in the eighth grade at PS 47 in Broad Channel as well, scores went up in the eighth grade at PS 43 in Edgemere. Both PS 43 and PS 47 are Kindergarten to eighth grade schools.

The results on the fourth grade and eighth grade ELA Test, as released by the board of education, are as follows:
