Richmond sets CRCT retest date

Richmond County schoolchildren who failed to pass the required portion of the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests will get another opportunity to pass next week.

On May 28, the reading CRCT retest will be administered to third-, fifth- and eighth-graders, and on May 29 the math retest will be administered to fifth- and eighth-graders.

Parents have been notified if their children failed

the state tests on the first attempt.

Pupils must pass the required portions of the CRCT to automatically be promoted to the next grade. Those who don’t pass must file an appeal in hopes of moving on.

Although individual parents have been notified, Richmond County’s overall CRCT results have not collected and publicly released.
