* Percentage testing proficient or higher

With new education standards and a new test debuting next school year, this will be the last year for the controversial FCAT. That was the biggest takeaway when the state began its annual release of FCAT results last week. Across Florida, just under 60 percent of third-graders tested at the proficient level or better in reading and math — same as last year. Pinellas' overall numbers stayed flat as well. But that doesn't tell the story at individual schools. At half the county's elementary schools, the number of third-graders who tested proficient in reading declined. Nearly 40 percent of elementary schools saw declines in the percentage of students proficient in math. Many other schools, meanwhile, saw significant increases. Below is a chart showing how each school in the northern portion of the county fared. More results are expected in the coming weeks.
