The Alabama State Board of Education has voted to lower the score needed to pass the reading portion of the ACAP test, which will majorly affect third graders moving on to fourth grade at the end of this school year.
This year, third graders taking the test must pass the reading portion of the ACAP test in order to move on to the fourth grade.
This comes after Alabama Literacy Act rules came into effect this school year.
Originally, students taking the reading portion of the test needed a score of 452 to pass that portion of the test.
HAMILTON — The City of Hamilton is making major considerations in increasing their support of the efforts being made to clean the streets of stray animals.
During a regular meeting held at city hall on Monday, Oct. 2, the city was scheduled to vote on paying Charlotte Williams with the Humane Society and Calen Weston with Hoof or Paw a sum of $1,200 per month, split equally between the two parties.
Before the vote was taken however, Mayor Bob Page allowed Weston to address the council, with the thought of tabling the vote for further consideration.
