Schools

By Local Labs News Service | Jan 22, 2018

Elm 06

Grade school districts in Waukegan, North Chicago and Zion 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.
