The Florida Department of Education said, “Based on the results… school recognition funds will be determined and will reward schools that have sustained high student performance or demonstrated substantial improvement in student performance.”
The “A” Through “F” Schools For The 2010-2011 School Year: These figures include all public high schools and combination schools that serve high school grade levels.
- F = 6 schools earned an “F” compared to 11 schools the year before.
- D = 25 schools earned a “D” compared to 57 schools the year before.
- C = 72 schools earned a “C” compared to 69 schools the year before.
- B = 224 schools earned a “B” compared to 188 schools the year before
- A = 147 schools earned an “A” compared to 145 schools the year before.
School grades are based on two major elements.
- 50% of the school’s grade comes from the students score on the FCAT at each school.
- 50% comes from factors like the school’s graduation rate and the graduation rate of at-risk students, the participation and performance of students in advances classes, certificate programs and college placement tests.
This expanded high school grading formula was used for the first time in the 2009-2010 school year.
School districts can appeal the grade through February 3, 2012.
