MARTIN COUNTY(WFLX)---August 6, 2010 - The Florida Department of Education released school grades for the 2009-2010 school year for elementary and middle schools, as well as FCAT points earned by high schools.
High school grades are not expected to be released until November due to the state's new two part grading formula. Based on the 2010 FCAT results, the Martin County School District earned an "A" grade for a 9th consecutive year.
In June, the state released FCAT scores for grades 4 through 11. Many school districts, including Martin, noted anomalies in the results, prompting independent audits by the state.
This week, the Florida Department of Education announced that it was standing behind the accuracy of the FCAT scores, despite continuing concerns raised by school districts and the Florida Association of District School Superintendents.
