School grades: How every Pasco school did compared to last year

Students in Stephanie Ramsey's third-grade class at Oakstead Elementary in Land O'Lakes celebrated the final days of school with a fun writing assignment tied to the name that came out of a popped balloon each day. School officials later found out that Oakstead also finished the year with an A grade from the state. [JEFFREY S. SOLOCHEK   |   Times]

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."
