Calculating Florida School Grades
On July 16,2013, the State Board of Education voted 4-3 in support of Commissioner
Tony Bennett's emergency rule to provide a "safety net" that schools' grades would
not drop more than one letter grade for FY2013 and through the State's transition
to the Common Core Standards.
The Board also voted to retroactively implement its plan for next year's provision
that would keep students who have attended special education centers and have not
attended a traditional school from counting toward the grade of their “home” school
to apply to the current 2012-2013 grades as well.
