As school divisions figure out what's working... and teachers, students, and parents put in the hours, the scores are improving.
The state Board of Education has given schools until 2007 before the scores really count for accreditation.
And it's NOT yet clear what that rating will mean.

22 percent statewide are getting 70 percent or better pass rates, which will be needed for full accreditation.
It's up from 7 percent last year and two percent the first year the scores were actually counted.
In our region, 17 percent of schools have hit the full accreditation... five percentage points lower than the statewide number.
Taking a look just at the metro areas, five of 30 schools in the city of Roanoke are at the full accreditation score.
