Grade school districts in West Chicago, Burr Ridge and Addison ranked among DuPage County's lowest for reading aptitude, according to the Illinois State Board of Education.

As part of the annual Partnership For Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers ("PARCC") examination, Illinois public school students in grades three through eight are asked to read and analyze passages of fiction and nonfiction, then write about them.

The students pass if their scores either meet or exceed expectations, indicating they're "ready for the next level" of school.
