Pasco County Schools held onto an overall B grade for the district, with most schools showing a similar consistency. Of the nearly 90 schools in the district, fewer than a quarter of them received a state grade different from last year.

A dozen schools scored better than last year, according to data released Thursday by the Florida Department of Education. Six scored worse than last year.

Here’s a breakdown of how every school in the district did compared to years past, with this year’s grade followed by grades for the previous three years in parentheses. In cases of schools that have been open for less than three years, fewer grades may be listed in parentheses.

The state has yet to issue grades for a handful of schools, marking them with an "I" for "incomplete."
