July 2014

Among District schools, 40% earned a rating of A in the State Accountability system, compared to just 36% state-wide.

Seventy percent of District schools increased or maintained their grade. Twenty Lee County schools improved their grade by at least one letter, while six Lee County schools – Harns Marsh Elementary, J. Colin English Elementary, Patriot Elementary, Skyline Elementary, Treeline Elementary and Harns Marsh Middle - each increased their grade by two letters.

The District’s overall grade improved to a B this year, making Lee County one of only four of the top ten largest districts to increase its letter grade, and one of only 17 districts state-wide to do so.

This is the last year the State will use the current school grade calculation formula. The future formula is expected to have a larger focus on individual student progress and success.

Of the District’s results, Superintendent Dr. Nancy Graham shared, “We are very pleased to be one of 17 school districts in the State to improve its District grade. As one of the ten largest districts in the State, we are happy our District grade is on par with our peers. This is a reflection of hard work across all schools as we continue to focus on improving throughout our system. Now the work begins to drill down to the specifics of each school and assist staff as they develop a plan to help students think and learn. As the Superintendent, I continue to encourage parents to focus on their child's individual scores rather than their school's grade.”
