DENVER (CBS4)– The latest round of test results shows solid gains for students in Denver Public Schools.
The school district said students posted gains in 23 of the 27 exams in the 2013 T-CAP tests.
DPS Superintendent Tom Boasberg said the students ranked first in overall academic growth for the second year in a row among the 12 biggest districts in the state.
“And that core belief is that every child will succeed. That every one of our children comes to us with talent and potential and ambition and dreams,” said Boasberg.
Jefferson County Schools reported its students showed proficiency gains in 17 testing areas.
Statewide scores for reading, writing, math and science were up slightly.
