Editor’s note: This is the corrected data from the Florida Department of Education, as of 12/7/2012.
The Florida Department of Education released some administrator evaluation data for the 2011-12 school year on Dec. 5. This is the first time the state has released data for the new administrator evaluations, which were required by a 2011 law.
For more details on what the evaluations require, check out the Florida Department of Education website.
The data has been broken down to district levels, but not to the individual administrator level.
The department says the released data is still subject to revision.
