GRADUATION RATE AND DROPOUT RATE

Federal Uniform Graduation Rate

The graduation rate shows the percentage of students who graduated with a standard high school diploma within four years of initial entry into ninth grade. These results are used in the calculation of schools' Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs). The AMO graduation rate target for all subgroups and all students is 85 percent or, if below 85 percent, an annual improvement of at least 2 percent.

STUDENT PERFORMANCE

Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, (FCAT) 2.0

The FCAT 2.0 measures student performance in writing, science, reading and mathematics and is aligned to Florida’s Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.

Florida End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments

In addition to FCAT 2.0 and FAA scores in each subject area, Florida’s 2012-13 and 2013-14 accountability results in mathematics include Algebra 1 and Geometry EOC Assessment scores. Florida’s 2012-13 and 2013-14 accountability results in science include Biology 1 EOC Assessment results. The Florida EOC Assessments are part of Florida's Next Generation Strategic Plan for the purpose of increasing student achievement and improving college and career readiness. EOC assessments are computer-based, criterion-referenced assessments that measure the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for specific courses, as outlined in their course descriptions.

Florida Alternate Assessment (FAA) for Students with Disabilities

The FAA is designed for students whose participation in the general statewide assessment (FCAT 2.0 and EOC) is not appropriate, even with accommodations. The FAA measures student academic performance on the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards Access Points (NGSSS-AP) in language arts (reading, writing), mathematics and science.

Accountability Assessment Results by Subject

Assessment results in the following tables reflect FCAT 2.0 data combined with FAA data for reading and writing. For mathematics and science, results include FCAT 2.0, FAA and EOC assessment results, as applicable. Results show proficiency attainment for students who were in attendance during both semesters of the school year.

Writing Assessment

For this measure, FCAT 2.0 Writing scores range from 1.0 (lowest) to 6.0 (highest). FAA scores have been merged with the FCAT 2.0 scores for reporting purposes. The AMO writing target for all subgroups and all students is 90 percent scoring satisfactory or above or an annual improvement of at least 1%.

*Indicates subgroups not included as separate sub-populations in reporting Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) for ESEA compliance. Note: An 'N' indicates that no test results were reported.
**Includes students currently enrolled in ESOL programs and English language learners who have exited ESOL within two years.
†Outcomes are based on writing results for students identified in the Low 25% for reading. The Low 25% target in Florida’s school grades system, which is calculated for reading and math, is based on individual student learning gains – the percentage of students making gains. Students must have current and prior-year test scores and be enrolled for a full academic year to qualify for inclusion in learning gains.

Reading, Mathematics and Science Assessments

On EOC assessments and the FCAT 2.0 reading, mathematics and science tests, students can attain one of five possible achievement levels, ranging from Level 1 (lowest) to Level 5 (highest), with scores at Level 3 or higher designated as proficient. The FAA is scored on nine performance levels, with FAA Level 4 establishing the minimum level for proficiency.

FAA scores have been merged with the FCAT 2.0 scores for reporting purposes. For more information on Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs), refer to the “Florida School Performance Grade and AMOs for ESEA Reporting” section below.

ELL STUDENTS

Recently Arrived English Language Learners (ELLs)

Florida students in ESOL programs who have been in the U.S. less than one year are required to be tested on the Comprehensive English Language Learning Assessment (CELLA) as well as on a state mathematics assessment, but may be exempt for up to one administration of the FCAT 2.0 in reading. These students’ test scores are not included in the current year’s proficiency calculations for math and reading as a flexibility provision approved for Florida by the U.S. Department of Education. The ESEA SPAR chart shows the number of recently arrived ELL students who are not included in the AMO mathematics and reading proficiency calculations for 2013-14.

National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

Below are the 2013 NAEP state results for grades 4 and 8 in reading and mathematics. Main NAEP, conducted at the state and national level, occurs every two years in reading and mathematics, every four years in science, and periodically in writing. A representative sample of the student population participates, and each student takes only a portion of the assessment. Results are then assembled to form projected state and national scores, based on aggregated student results. NAEP does not provide school- or student-level results.

1. Scale Scores

A scale score is derived from an averaging of scores of student responses to NAEP assessment items on a 0—500 point scale. Scale scores summarize the overall level of performance attained by a group of students. (NAEP does not produce scale scores for individual students.) When used in conjunction with interpretive aids, such as item maps, scale scores provide information about what a particular aggregate of students in the population knows and can do.

2. Achievement Level

Achievement levels are based on scale scores and define the degree to which student performance meets expectations of what students should know and be able to do. The achievement levels are Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. Below Basic is also reported but not considered to be an achievement level.

The following chart compares the achievement levels between NAEP and the FCAT 2.0:

FCAT 2.0 Achievement
Levels
NAEP Achievement
Standards
5 Advanced
4 Proficient
2-3 Basic
1 Below Basic

NAEP Participation Rates for Required Subgroups

The chart below shows, for the sample of Florida schools selected to take the grade 04 and grade 08 math and reading assessments, the percentage of Students with Disabilities (SWDs) and English language learners (ELLs) in the tested grades who were tested on each assessment. The goal established by the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) is 85% inclusion.

Additional information is provided on the NAEP website at http://www.nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/ or on the FLDOE website at http://www.fldoe.org/asp/naep/.

PISA is an international assessment that measures 15-year-old students' reading, mathematics, and science literacy. It assesses students' applied knowledge and skills to problems within a real-life context as they near the end of compulsory schooling. PISA makes the assumption that as students transition to adult life, they need not only to comprehend what they read or to retain particular mathematical formulas or scientific concepts, but also to know how to apply their knowledge and skills in the many different situations they will encounter in their everyday lives. Florida's objective is to meet the performance of the 10th ranked country.

Percentage of Teachers Teaching with Emergency or Provisional Credentials

Florida has no uncertified teachers, although some teachers may be temporarily assigned to areas outside of their field of specialization. Data on classes taught by teachers out of field is provided in the following table.

In-Field and Out-of-Field Teachers

The following chart shows the percentage of core academic classes taught by teachers teaching in-field compared to the percentage of classes taught by teachers teaching out-of-field. When a teacher in a district school system is assigned teaching duties in a class dealing with subject matter that is outside the field in which the teacher is certified, outside the field that was the applicant's minor field of study, or outside the field in which the applicant has demonstrated sufficient subject area expertise, as determined by district school board policy in the subject area to be taught, that teacher is teaching "out-of-field." Core academic subjects are English, reading, language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics, government, economics, arts, history and geography.

  School % District % State %
Percentage of Classes with Teachers Teaching In-Field 59.7 90.0 93.8
Percentage of Classes with Teachers Teaching Out-of-Field 40.3 10.0 6.2

Classes Not Taught by Highly Qualified Teachers

The chart below shows the percentage of classes not taught by "Highly Qualified Teachers" in core academic subjects as defined in federal statute. A highly qualified teacher has earned at least a bachelor's degree and holds a Florida teaching certificate with appropriate certification for each core academic area of assignment. Core academic subjects are English, reading, language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics, government, economics, arts, history and geography.

  School % District % State %

*High-poverty schools are schools ranking in the top 25% of schools based on the percentage of students eligible for free/reduced-price lunch. Low-poverty schools rank in the bottom quartile of schools based on free/reduced-price lunch enrollment. That is, low-poverty schools have the lowest enrollment in free/reduced-price lunch as a percentage of total membership.

FLORIDA SCHOOL PERFORMANCE GRADE AND AMOs FOR ESEA REPORTING

School Performance Grade

Public schools in Florida are graded annually based on student performance on state assessments and the percentage of students making learning gains. Schools are assigned a letter grade (A through F) corresponding with their rated performance, with grade "A" representing the highest performance rating and grade "F" representing a failed rating. A rating of "I" indicates that grading is incomplete. A grade of "N" indicates that the school is not graded. While the vast majority of Florida's schools receive a performance grade, certain types of schools are exempt from grading, including Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) facilities. High schools will receive a grade based 50 percent on state assessment-based measures and 50 percent on other measures, including graduation rates, accelerated curricula and college readiness. Those grades will not be available until near the end of the calendar year. For those schools, a "P" (pending) appears in place of their grades.

2013-14 School Performance Grade*: B

*Certain school grades may be subject to modification pending appeal.


Progress of the Lowest Performing 25% of Students, 2013-14

Components of the school grade calculation include learning gains of the lowest performing students in reading and mathematics. The following table provides information on the points earned based on learning gains made by students in the lowest quartile in the current year.

School Results
Mathematics Low 25%, Points Earned* Reading Low 25%, Points Earned*
2013-14 2013-14
87 49

*Points are based on the weighted percentage of students making learning gains. Students who move from a lower level to level 4 are weighted at a factor of 1.1 in the numerator. Students who move from a lower level to level 5 are weighted at a factor of 1.2 in the numerator. Prior-year low performers who increased their scores by at least 33% beyond the minimum increase to qualify for gains are also weighted at a factor of 1.1 in the numerator.


For more information on school grades and grading procedures, contact your principal's office or your local school board or visit the School Grades web page at http://schoolgrades.fldoe.org.

Identified Schools for ESEA Flexibility

The table below indicates how schools in this district were identified for ESEA flexibility. Focus schools are identified as schools for which the most recent grade is “D” as well as Title 1 schools graded “C” or higher for which the federal four-year graduation rate was lower than 60%. Priority schools are identified as schools for which the most recent grade is “F.” Reward schools are schools that were graded “A”; improved a letter grade; were rated “Improving” in the school improvement rating system or improved a rating; or maintained a grade after having improved by two or more letter grades in the prior year.
