Kairos students posted some of Solano County’s highest scores on the recently released new, all-computerized state tests taken by some 3.2 million California public school students last spring, the California Department of Education reported.
While most Vacaville-area school district students, in grades three through eight and 11, failed to meet state standards in English and mathematics, nearly 300 Kairos students did.
At the Elm Street campus in Vacaville, nearly 60 percent of the students at Kairos — an independent charter not formally governed by Vacaville Unified officials — met or exceeded the standard; in math, 52 percent met or exceeded the standard. The CDE did not list Kairos’ scores as part of Vacaville Unified’s, treating them as if from a separate school district.
