Bibb County high school graduation-test scores ticked up this year, but still remain below the state average.

 

Meanwhile, Houston County scores remain above the state average in every test category.

 

Bibb and Houston released this year's districtwide graduation-test results.

 

The biggest increase in Bibb was for science results: Last year, 75 percent percent of students met state standards; this year it was 81 percent. Statewide, 95 percent of students met the standards.

 

Social students and English-language arts results in Bibb also rose 2 points this year.

 

In Houston, 92 percent of students met state English/language arts standards this year, 88 percent in math, 84 percent in social studies and 95 percent in science. Those were all above the state average.

Students who attended Georgia high schools in the past year must pass all four tests and a writing test to graduate. This spring, the state Board of Education approved a plan to phase out those requirements.
