Endeavour Elementary in Cocoa was Brevard Public School’s only F grade – having been a D last year. University Park in Melbourne and Imagine Charter School in West Melbourne earned D grades.According to the BPS website, “School grades are a part of Florida’s accountability system designed to communicate to the public how well a school is performing relative to state standards. Grades are reported on the familiar A-F scale. All public schools serving students in grades 3-12 receive a school grade. Elementary and middle schools earn a school grade based primarily upon student achievement data from the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0), the Florida Alternate Assessment (FAA) which is administered to cognitively disabled students, and the Algebra 1 and Geometry end-of-course (EOC) tests given to students enrolled in those courses.
“The assessment-based components of school grades are calculated using student achievement results in reading, math, writing, and science; annual learning gains for each student; and the progress of the school’s lowest performing students. School grades for middle schools include an additional component measuring student participation and performance in accelerated courses.”
