Vernon High School receives ‘A’ grade

Published: Friday, January 10, 2014 at 10:03 AM.

The number of high schools earning an F grade also increased, to eight from three a year ago. A “safety net” approved by the State Board of Education prevented seven schools from losing more than a letter grade this year. Two of those schools would have earned an F grade without the safety net rule.

The high school grades added three new criteria this year: Growth in test scores of the lowest-scoring 25 percent of students at each school; requiring at least 25 percent of students score 3 or higher on the FCAT reading test; and biology end-of-course test results.
