School Districts Graded
The final bell has sounded on the 2010-2011 school year. More schools received "A" grades and fewer flunked. The state trend held true in North Central Florida. Thursday morning, the department of education released the grades and 82 Florida schools raised their grade to an "A." There are now 13 fewer "F" schools.
Here is a list of how districts fared in North Central Florida:
Alachua County A
Bradford County C
Columbia County B
Dixie County A
Gilchrist County A
Levy County B
Marion County B
Putnam County C
Suwannee County C
Union County A
This upcoming local school year could be the most difficult.
"We are facing a significantly tougher standard from the state while getting a lot less resources from the state so that certainly is going to make this upcoming year an interesting and challenging one," said Jackie Johnson with Alachua County Public Schools.
