Illinois' worst 100 grade school ELA scores: Where does your school district rank?

Schools

By Local Labs News Service | Feb 18, 2019


Grade school districts in Chicago ranked among Illinois' lowest for reading aptitude, according to the Illinois State Board of Education.

As part of the annual Partnership For Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers ("PARCC") examination, Illinois public school students in grades three through eight are asked to read and analyze passages of fiction and nonfiction, then write about them.

The students pass if their scores either meet or exceed expectations, indicating they're "ready for the next level" of school.
