School districts across the state are raising concerns about the newly-released state report cards.

Some local school districts’ concerns stem from new data elements, as well as overall concerns with standardized testing.

The Department of Education released the state report cards Nov. 29. Shortly afterward, Berkeley County School District posted a press release to its website stating the district does not believe the state report card “fairly measures BCSD students, teachers and administrators.”

Dorchester District Two issued a press release Nov. 30 stating “significant problems” with the data in several report card calculations caused the state to delay the release of the school report cards from Nov. 15 to Nov. 29.
