BROOKSVILLE – The state has released school and district grades for 2016-17. The Hernando County School District gained 23 points from last year and earned a “B” for the third year in a row. Schools throughout the district showed improved learning gains across multiple content areas yielding strong final school grades. With the exception of 1 school, all other schools in the district maintained or improved their grade over last year.
Notable movers are Brooksville Elem., Chocachatti Elem., Pine Grove Elem., Spring Hill Elem., Parrott, Middle, Nature Coast Technical High and Springstead High each improved one grade. JD Floyd dropped to a “C” while all other schools maintained their grade from 2016.
“Our educators and our school leaders have committed to continuous improvement. They have challenged themselves to think differently about schools and schooling. These scores are a testament to their work, their skill and their unflagging dedication to our students. What cannot be seen in these grades but must be recognized is the influence of our parents, students and our community in this achievement,” Superintendent, Dr. Lori Romano said.
