Two Pasco schools get accountability upgrades
In reviewing Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) appeals, the Florida Department of Education got a request to consider rounding up its AYP percentage calculations to the nearest whole number instead of using fractions.
The DOE agreed to do it. As a result of the rounding, some schools ended up with higher percentages of standards met than initially reported.
For Zephyrhills High School and Bayonet Point Middle School, that means a move on the state's accountability schedule from Correct II to the less stringent Correct I.
No schools in Florida were negatively affected by this change in calculations.
