On July 26 at 3:30 pm, Mayor Vincent Gray will be joined by government education agencies to announce the results of the District’s Comprehensive Assessment System (DC CAS) for the 2011-2012 school year.   Representatives from the Office of the Deputy Mayor of Education (DME), Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE), State Board of Education (SBOE), District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS), and District of Columbia Public Charter School Board (PCSB) will attend.

The announcement takes place at Neval Thomas Elementary School (650 Anacostia Ave NE).

According to the release,

Administered annually to District students in Grades 3-8 and 10, DC CAS exams are designed to measure student proficiency, performance and growth based on state content standards. Students were tested in math, reading and science in 2012 and scores will be assessed for the first time under the District’s waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind law. Results are statewide and represent both DCPS and D.C. Public Charter Schools.
