Clay Today - July 5, 2017 - Full Story Here

GREEN COVE SPRINGS – The Clay County School District was one point away from being named an “A” District in recent scores released last week by the Florida Department of Education for the 2016-2017 school year.

The state calculates school grades annually based on up to 11 components, including student achievement and learning gains on statewide, standardized assessments and high school graduation rate. Clay County improved in percent of possible points earned, moving from 57 percent (“B” letter grade) to 61 percent (“B” letter grade), one point shy of the “A” school rating (62 percent).

Clay County District Schools now has 12 “A” schools, an increase of five schools from the 2015-2016 academic year. Three schools improved from a “C” letter grade to “A” or “B” ratings. Lake Asbury Junior High demonstrated remarkable improvements jumping from a “C” to an “A” school, a 101-point increase. Ridgeview Elementary made significant gains by increasing 134 points, moving from a “B” school to an “A.” Overall, Clay County now ranks 12th in state in percent of possible points earned, moving up eight spots from last year.

“The release of school grades demonstrates Clay County District Schools is moving in the right direction to become a Top 10 and “A” school district. These improvements are based on the hard work and commitment exhibited from our teachers, support staff, school leaders, students, and parents. Clay County Schools will continue to focus on providing on-going, high quality, and relevant experiences for our students as we seek to offer a world-class education. Overall, I am excited about our future and continuing to Elevate Clay,” said Superintendent Addison Davis.
