Following a statewide trend, Vallejo City Unified School District test scores slipped this year and still remain behind the state average.
Meanwhile, Hogan Middle School and Benicia High School in the neighboring district were both tagged by the state as having students who used social media while they were taking tests.
Those schools were among more than 200 listed by the state, of which only 16 had postings of test answers or questions. Hogan and Benicia were not among those 16. Students are not allowed to use electronic devices during testing, and the incidents could potentially put those schools’ scores in jeopardy.
