Poquoson in the news...
 
     Kyle Crockett shows his cool
Rookie lefty Kyle Crockett found himself in an intriguing situation Thursday night at Minute Maid Park.

It was the 12th inning of a 1-1 game when he relieved fellow rookie CC Lee with a runner on first and a 2-0 count on catcher Jason Castro.

"It's kind of amazing when you think about bringing Crockett into the game right there," said manager Terry Francona. "He's the youngest kid on our staff and you go to him in that situation because you trust him enough to throw strikes and then you leave him in there to get the righties.

"Kyle Crockett is a cool customer."

Francona said Crockett's role will expand next season.

"I think there's a way to develop guys who come up quick like that," said Francona. "You don't want to give them too much of a workload. But he's a keeper."

     Poquoson SOL pass rates top state averages, except in eighth-grade math
Poquoson students' Standards of Learning pass rates were better than the statewide averages for the most part. However, students taking the SOL for eighth grade mathematics did not have pass rates as high as the statewide average.

"Middle school math is definitely a focus area for our improvement efforts, and our staff and teachers are exploring ways to maximize instruction and engage students to improve achievement," said Amy Colley, assistant superintendent at Poquoson City Public Schools in an email Friday.

The pass rate for eighth grade math statewide was 67 percent, while the pass rate for eighth grade math students in Poquoson was 49 percent. In 2012-2013 the pass rate among Poquoson eighth grade math students was 37 percent.

Colley said that less than 40 percent of the middle school's eighth graders take eighth grade math. Instead many eighth graders take higher level math courses such as Algebra I and Geometry.

Poquoson students' pass rate for the English reading SOL test and the writing SOL test were above the statewide average for all grades and "end of course" tests.
