Duval District: 86% of Schools Have Satisfactory Grade or Higher

In Duval County, 86 percent of Duval County public schools have made a satisfactory grade or higher on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. The grades released today were for elementary schools

"We believe these scores are not indicative of the academic achievement and learning gains actually taking place in our schools...," said Duval superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals.

This year 127 schools out of 149 earned excellent, good or satisfactory grades according to the district, while 21 schools received a D or F, according to the district.

"Duval County Public Schools continues to remain a 'B district," said a statement today.

The state's testing vendor, NCS Pearson, had difficulty matching its student database to the state's and was weeks late in delivering the results. The company has been fined nearly $15 million.
