In the Lowcountry, the Jasper County School Board and District officials met with parents on Monday to discuss the results of the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards Test and the High School Assessment Program.
Some board members said the district still isn't where it should be, but they're hopeful after seeing the results.
"This shows us that Jasper County has surpassed the state gains the past years," said Chief Officer of Finance and Data Management Gary West. "And we're making gains equivalent to the other public schools in Jasper County."
The South Carolina Department of Education plans on releasing the letter grades in October or November.
