No FCAT F's for Hillsborough County schools

When grades for schools were released last week, it was cause for celebration at most area public schools, which saw more grades improve than decline. No Hillsborough County school was graded F. However, area high schools, as reflected across the state, scored lower. School grades are based on students' Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test scores in reading, math, writing and science.
