FRAMINGHAM – The Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education released MCAS data today, September 21.
The numbers show that the Framingham Public Schools are struggling when it comes to meeting the standard for science.
Students in grades 5 and 8 took the MCAS exam in 2021. They did not take the science MCAS exams in 2020, due to the pandemic.
In grade 8, 31% of students met or exceeded the science expectation, which was down 3% from 2019 MCAS scores.
In grade 5, 33% of students met or exceeded the science expectation, which was down just 1% from 2019.
This is a developing report & SOURCE will update later.
