Richmond Public Schools revises SAT scores

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond Public Schools has revised its SAT scores.

After complaints from delegate Joe Morrissey and political consultant Paul Goldman, Richmond has taken the scores from Maggie Walker Governor's School out of the mix.

Without the Governor's School, the city's SAT score average drops nearly 200 points.

Morrissey accused the district of taking credit for the scores of high performing students to bump of its average.

Calls to Richmond Public Schools to explain the change have not been returned, but spokeswoman Felicia Cosby said Sunday in the Richmond Times-Dispatch that the information currently posted on the website is not complete and will be further updated this week to include the chart excluding Maggie Walker students, another SAT chart that includes Maggie Walker students, and a third SAT chart that includes just the Richmond students who attend the governor's school.

"To remedy any confusion about the reporting of the College Board information, we are currently in the process of including additional information to our SAT postings for enhanced clarity," Cosby said to the Times-Dispatch.
