Clay County District Schools received an “A” rating Thursday from the Department of Education’s district grades for the 2021-22 school year.
Clay County is ranked among the top 10 highest performing school districts in the state with 85% of its schools receiving an “A” or “B” grade from the state. Additionally, none of Clay County District Schools got a “D” or “F” grade.
Out of 67 school districts in the state, only 14 received an “A” rating from the Florida Department of Education.
“The past two years have certainly been difficult in education and this “A” ranking shows the strength and resilience of Clay County District Schools,” CCDS Superintendent David Broskie said. “Today’s results represent all the hard work and dedication that students, teachers, support staff, administrators, and parents have poured into public education. Clay County deserves this honor and recognition. As the educational leader for the school district, I am very proud of our continued success and look forward to a bright future ahead.”
The school grades calculation was revised substantially for the 2014-15 school year to implement statutory changes made by the 2014 Legislature and incorporate the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA), according to the Florida Department of Education.
The school grading system focuses the school grading formula on student success measures – achievement, learning gains, graduation rate, acceleration success and maintaining a focus on students who need the most support.
