The long-delayed FCAT scores were finally released today, and they show Sarasota County students making gains in some areas and falling back in others.
All FCAT results were supposed to be released May 19, but the state contractor, Pearson Education Inc., experienced problems with its student database. Only third-grade reading and math scores and some 10th-grade scores were released on time.
Among Sarasota County students, only seventh-graders and 10th-graders improved both their reading and math scores from last year.
Third graders were the only ones to see a decline in both reading and math.
All scores in all reading levels exceeded the state average.

Can you dig it?
Third- and fourth-grade students of Temple Beth Sholom had a chance to brush up on their paleontology skills last week while digging for faux dinosaur bones.
Sound of scholars
Local students Caleb Upton and Matthew Vaadi received some help for their upcoming studies to the tune of $1,000 each from the Sarasota Chorus of the Keys. The scholarships were made possible through the Sheridan E. Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund. Both students plan to use the funds toward a career in music.
