Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

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.
