Manatee County School District Superintendent Tim McGonegal is joining superintendents statewide in questioning the accuracy of Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test results released today by the Florida Department of Education.
Results show 36% of Manatee’s elementary schools received A scores, while 59% of elementary and middle schools received A or B scores. The grades mark a considerable decline from last year, at which time 51% of district schools received an A grade and 76% received an A or B.
The Florida Association of District School Superintendents has raised concerns over the accuracy of learning gains in fourth and fifth grade reading and in matching student scores with student demographic profiles, both of which can impact results.
Pearson, the company hired by the FLDOE to score and report results for the exam, has admitted to a delay in getting scores back because of problems in matching student scores with student demographic profiles.

Food and fun
The Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance and its Young Leaders Alliance have something to talk about: the organizations collected 764 pounds of nonperishable food and $1,295 cash to benefit The Food Bank of Manatee/Meals on Wheels PLUS.
River Club’s Cheryl Kaufman says she’s still pinching herself.
A little “Ho! Ho! Ho!” can go a long way this holiday season.
