The Florida Department of Education released the 2015-2016 school grades based on the Florida Standard Assessments (FSA) in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry End-of-Course on Friday.
Hillsborough County Public Schools had 51 schools that were graded an “A” and 43 schools received a “B” grade. Six of their schools improved their grade from an “F” to a “C”, including Bryan Elementary, Desoto Elementary, Ruskin Elementary, West Tampa Elementary, and two charter schools.
The district maintains a quality education and is not measured by a state or local assessment alone but by how well a student is prepared for college or a career.
“Our teachers, school administrators, and district staff have been working diligently preparing our students for these assessments, just as they have done in the past. I am grateful for their hard work and focus on student achievement,” said Superintendent Jeff Eakins, Hillsborough County Public Schools.
