Northeast Florida school districts improve grade over past year
Jun 28 2017 by Larry Hoffman
The Sarasota County school district maintained its "A" rating from the Florida Department of Education for the 14th year in a row, according to data released Wednesday.
The percentage of Florida schools earning an A or B increased to 57 percent from 46 percent, and the number of F schools in the state plummeted from 111 to 43, the Department of Education said. High school grades also take into account graduation rates and the performance of students tests tied to college level work or industry certifications.
In Collier County's 53 schools, 25 earned an "A", and 15 earned a "B".
Clay and Baker counties also maintained their B ratings. Ramona Boulevard Elementary in Duval County went from a "C" to an "F", and William Moseley Elementary in Putnam County went from a "D" to an "F".
