Overall district ratings

The Boston Globe ranked public school districts on their average rank on all MCAS tests taken Spring 2004. The ranking includes all school districts: regular, charter, regional, and vocational. For each of the 10 tests, districts were ranked on the percentage of students reaching proficient or better by combining the "advanced" and "proficient" students into a single figure for each test, then by figuring an average rank for all tests. The two lower levels on the state scoring system are "needs improvement" and "warning/failing." The tests are reading (grade 3), English (4, 7, 10), math (4, 6, 8, 10), and science (5, 8).
