County elementary school grades slip

Published: Thursday, August 1, 2013 at 09:48 AM.

High school grades are formulated differently, with half of the points based on FCAT scores and the other half on participation and success in dual-enrolled courses, dropout rates, graduation rates and other factors.

In any case, it appears the district will see its streak of consecutive years as a high-performing district end at six.

Recognition as a high-performing district – and the past two years there have been fewer than 20 statewide among 67 districts – Gulf District Schools must be an honor roll district and have a clean annual financial audit.

The district is unlikely to maintain honor roll status.

Based on points scored, the projection is that Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School will be an ‘A’ school and Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School a ‘C’ school, giving the district an ‘A’, ‘B’ and two ‘C’ schools, not enough for honor roll recognition.

Instructional pay raises

The district and union representing teachers have arrived at an agreement on how to disburse money allocated for pay raises this past spring by the Florida Legislature.
