We enjoy very much our Worth County school system.. Our southern charm without regard to parents social status or color .. Is the greatest difference we have found .. Our instructors work very hard to set the stage for equality among our kids and I thank them dearly for this effort... However Traffic flow along with crossing guards that are in uniformed "note these crossing guards need to be trained and wearing crossing guard uniforms ... Trained crossing guards are needed at ALL our schools for directing Traffic, helping police safety officers ... Traffic is a nitemare at entrance and exits points ... My wife had a accident some terms ago More needs to be done with our schools traffic flow and with those whom help direct this flow ....

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Georgia administered the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) in reading, social studies, science, English language arts and math in grades 3 through 8. The CRCT is a standards-based assessment, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Georgia. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
