PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN WESTON Receive “A” Grades for 2012
All public elementary and middle schools in Weston (nine schools) each received an “A” grade once again from the Florida Department of Education. High school scores will be compiled in December 2012.
Each year, public schools in Florida receive a school grade on an A-F scale. School grades indicate how well a school is performing based on state standards. For elementary and middle schools, the grades are based entirely on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) results. High school scores include other components.
Florida has raised expectations for school grades five times in the past ten years. The results show that after an initial drop, school grades improved consistently in the years that followed. As Florida moves toward implementing the Common Core State Standards in 2014-15, the progress seen over the next few years will smooth the transition to the more challenging standards.
Even with an increase in these standards, the elementary and middle schools in Weston have achieved another “A” rating year!
