Both of East County’s high schools earned “A” grades from the state in the 2013 High School Accountability Grades released today by the Florida Department of Education.
Braden River and Lakewood Ranch High Schools both received an “A” for the second year in a row.
Overall, four of the seven Manatee County School District high schools earned “A” grades and, for the first time, all of the high schools earned either an A or B grade.
“Hats off to our students, teachers and principals who contributed to this fantastic showing among our high schools,” said Deputy Superintendent of Instructional Services Dr. Diana Greene. “This is evidence of the tremendous dedication and commitment being devoted to the success of our students.”
Florida’s High School Accountability system grades schools based on student performance on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT), graduation rates, student participation and performance in advanced coursework and college and career preperation.
Under the requirements, 50% of a high school’s grade is based on FCAT performance, and the remaining 50% is based on factors that include the following:
• The school’s graduation rate.
• The performance and participation of students in Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Dual Enrollment, Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) and industry certification.
• The postsecondary readiness of the students as measured by the SAT, ACT or College Placement Test (CPT).
• The high school graduation rate of at-risk students.
• Growth or decline in these data components from year to year.
The state released data from middle schools and elementary schools this summer.
