MCAS high school biology exam passing rates

Here are the passing rates for school districts on the 2007 MCAS high school biology exam, given in the spring of 2007. To pass a student must score "needs improvement" or higher. Beginning with the class of 2010 (current 10th graders), students must pass at least one of the four high school science tests in order to get their diplomas. Not every school participated in all four exams. Source: State Department of Education.
