Florida has handed out grades for every school and school district. Here’s how our 11 area districts fared

The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) on Monday released school grades for the 2022-23 school year.

School districts in St. Johns, Clay and Nassau counties all received an “A” while those in Alachua, Baker, Columbia, Duval, Flagler and Union received a “B”. Bradford and Putnam county school districts got a “C”.

The new data shows no change in the letter grades for the 11 school districts in our area.

As a part of Florida’s transition to using progress monitoring instead of traditional high-stakes testing, grades for the 2022-2023 school year will serve as a baseline and carry no negative consequences, FDOE said.

Schools and Districts will now use their 2022-23 baseline grades from the FAST assessment to make changes in instructional practices that will lead to better outcomes for students.

“These school grades serve as a baseline for districts and provide a starting point for future achievement,” said Commissioner of Education Manny Diaz, Jr. “I look forward to seeing schools rise to the occasion as they continue to provide Florida students a first-rate education.”
