Fewer Richmond County students must retake the state's CRCT, according to results released this evening.
Richmond County released results showing improvements on all required tests except fifth-grade reading.
Third-, fifth- and eighth-graders must pass the required portions of the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests to automatically move to the next grade.
Despite the improvements, math continued to be a problem. In eighth- grade 49.1 percent of students failed to pass, according to preliminary results.
