Some good news about the spring Indiana IREAD scores just released today. Third graders did slightly better than last year. 

Statewide, the passage rate was 85.58 percent. That's up 0.3 percent from 2013. Third graders must pass this test before moving on to fourth grade.

The good news is the scores have improved each year. Just 80 percent of the students passed in the test's first year in 2011.

The school and corporation level data will be out later this month.
