PSJHS earns an ‘A’; maintains district streak

Published: Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 10:03 AM.

For the third consecutive year Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School earned an ‘A’ under the state’s grading formula for schools.

That may be enough to maintain the Gulf District School streak of recognition as a high-performing district.

High school and combination school grades were released last week by the Florida Department of Education.

Wewahitchka Jr./Sr. High School fell just shy of a ‘B’ to again earn a ‘C’.

“Congratulations to both schools on a great job,” said Superintendent of Gulf County Schools Jim Norton. “We are very excited about what the scores were for all our schools.

“The great news is that Port St. Joe High School was an ‘A’ school for the third year in a row. That says a lot about the faculty and staff. Wewahitchka High School we thought might earn a ‘B’ but they fell just short. It was a great job by everybody.”

There is an appeal window open through Jan. 22 but it was not clear if district officials might appeal the WHS grade.
