Kalamazoo Public Schools see improved MEAP test scores


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Michigan Department of Education's released 2012's MEAP test score results and Kalamazoo Public Schools has seen grades increase once again.

In math, five of the six third through eighth grade classes showed improvements, while one stayed the same.  Three of six showed increases in reading, with one falling and two staying the same.  A release from the district also notes that every grade in both reading and math saw significantly improved scores for 2012 over tests taken just five years prior in 2007.

Superintendent Dr. Michael Rice attributes the increases to efforts on the part of the KPS staff, adding that there's still always room for improvement.
