Another 34 percent approached expectations, 21 percent partially met expectations and 12 percent did not meet expectations. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.

Test results at Geff Elementary School, which enrolled 98 students in 2017, fell below state averages.

Statewide, 34 percent of students passed the test and 66 percent failed.

Of students statewide who passed, only five percent 'exceeded' expectations.
