Florida education news: wrong grades, A-rated, back to school



WRONG GRADES: The state Department of Education issued incorrect school grades for more than 200 elementary and middle schools statewide. The state didn't announce the mistakes. They called superintendents.

A-RATED: The Palm Beach County School District kept its A rating after all. The state issued 11 incorrect grades to schools in Palm Beach County, causing the district's overall rating to drop, the Palm Beach Post reported.

BACK TO SCHOOL: Back to school promotions are in full swing in South Florida, the Sun Sentinel reports.

ETHICS: Two school board members in Miami-Dade County separately approached the county commission on ethics and public trust to discuss filling vacancies on the ethics advisory group. Because of the state's Sunshine Law, they couldn't discuss it themselves, according to the Miami Herald.

PAINTING: College staff members help paint a school in Lee County, the News-Press reports.
