Board Of Education
Gov. Rick Scott has sent a message to the state Board of Education about the importance of his proposed pay raise teachers.
As the school year comes to a close, the final set of scores from this year’s Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test were released Tuesday and state education officials said the scores are better than they expected but South Florida numbers were lower than the state average in most cases.
Since its inception, Florida schools and their students have had a lot riding on the scores of the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test (FCAT).
The preliminary results of the latest round of Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests didn’t exactly make the grade. The state’s Board of Education has scheduled an emergency conference call for Tuesday to discuss reducing the passing grade.
After hearing from concerned parents, educators and school officials, including Miami-Dade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, the state’s Board of Education passed a revised proposal which changes the way schools are graded.
A proposal which would change the way schools are graded and increase the number of ‘F’ schools in the state dramatically if implemented will be considered Tuesday by the Board of Education.
A new grading formula could mean more “F’s” for South Florida schools.
The state is considering raising the bar for students who have to take the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.
Under a proposed new scoring system, the percentage of students who fail the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) could potentially skyrocket.
It will be up to the state’s education commissioner and the Legislature to deal with school districts which were caught violating the newly enforced class size limits.
