The Florida Department of Education has released the results of the Spring 2011 FCAT 2.0 Grades 4-10 Reading and Grades 4-8 Mathematics assessments, as well as the results of the Spring 2011 Grade 10 FCAT Mathematics and Grades 5, 8, and 11 FCAT Science assessments.  Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) has shown improvement in 11 different areas while scores stayed the same in 3 others.

“We are encouraged to see that our students are continuing to make progress”, said Superintendent Pratt-Dannals. “These scores are proof of the hard work and dedication of our students and teachers.”

The results for the 2011 FCAT 2.0 show improvements throughout the district. Grades six, and eight through ten all show one-point gains in reading scores, while mathematics scores either rose or stayed the same for grades four, five, seven and ten. Science scores also showed improvement for students in the fifth grade.

The shining stars in this year’s results are Pinedale elementary who improved their scores overall by 139 points over last year. Ortega improved by 97 points, St. Clair Evans by 74 points, Long Branch by 70 points, S.P. Livingston by 58 points, and Biltmore by improved 54 points overall

With the release of the 2011 FCAT 2.0 scores, the district has 20 days to review any inconsistencies in scoring. School grades will then be determined and should be released sometime in late June for elementary and middle schools, with high school grades expected sometime in October or November.

Duval County Public Schools operates 172 schools and serves approximately 123,000 students. The school district is committed to providing high quality educational opportunities that will inspire all students to acquire and use the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in a global economy and culturally diverse world.
