Florida also issues lowest performing schools list
Alongside much anticipated 2013 school grades, the Florida Department of Education on Friday also quietly released its list of 100 lowest-performing elementary schools, based on FCAT reading performance.
Schools in this category fall subject to increased scrutiny by the state.
The list included 11 Hillsborough schools — Sheehy, Shaw, James, Dover, Just, Ruskin, Potter, Sulphur Springs, Oak Park, Burney and Broward — and seven Pinellas schools — Campbell Park, Fairmount Park, Maximo, Imagine, Sandy Lane, Lakewood and Melrose.
Miami-Dade had the most schools on the list, with 22, while Broward (15) and Duval (13) were next highest.
