Florida School Grades To Be Released Today

June 30, 2011

School grades will be released this morning by the Florida Department of Education for elementary and middle schools.

Each school is given a grade based primarily upon student achievement data from the FCAT.  The grades are designed to communicate to the public how well a school is performing relative to state standards.

School grades are calculated based on annual learning gains of each student toward achievement of Sunshine State Standards, the progress of the lowest quartile of students, and the meeting of proficiency standards.

NorthEscambia.com will post the school grades for the schools in the North Escambia area later this morning.
