M-DCPS Makes History Becoming an A-Rated School District

first_imgSuperintendent Carvalho (center) and (from left to right) School Board member Lubby Navarro, Board Chair Perla Tabares Hantman, and School Board members Mari Tere Rojas and Dr. Lawrence S Feldman are surrounded by community leaders, teachers, administrators and students. From the the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) announcement of school grades for 2017-18, it has been ascertained that for the first time in the history of the Florida School Performance Grades, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) has achieved a district-wide grade of “A.” No “F” rated schools For the second year in a row there are no “F” – rated traditional schools at M-DCPS. Higher percentages of Miami-Dade schools received “A” ratings in 2018 than statewide across all schools, and in all other large Florida districts, including Broward, Hillsborough, Duval, Palm Beach, and Orange. A testament“This historic, record-setting news is a testament to the fortitude and focus of students, teachers, school and District leaders, support staff and every member of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools team,” said Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho. “We are fortunate to have the support and visionary leadership of our School Board and a group of talented professionals who I consider the best instructional staff in the nation – our teachers. They believe in the ability, potential, and learning capacity of every child. Today is a great day to celebrate in Miami-Dade.” 47 percent of schools are “A” rated schools In 2018, 47 percent of all Miami-Dade schools received “A” ratings, compared to just 32 percent statewide. This represents an increase of eight percentage points from last year for M-DCPS, compared to a two-point increase statewide.  Ninety-eight percent of M-DCPS schools are rated A, B or C. M-DCPS also received higher ratings than the state and the other large counties when examining the percentage of schools combined across “A” and “B” ratings; and across “A”, “B”, and “C” ratings. For each school level, M-DCPS outperformed schools statewide in the percentage receiving “A” ratings:49 percent of M-DCPS elementary schools, compared to 28 percent statewide.40 percent of M-DCPS middle schools, compared to 33 percent statewide.37 percent of M-DCPS senior high schools, compared to 32 percent statewide.56 percent of M-DCPS combination grade schools, compared to 45 percent statewide. The Florida Department of Education calculates school grades annually based on up to 11 components, including student achievement and learning gains on statewide, standardized assessments and high school graduation rate. School grades provide parents and the public an easily understandable way to measure the performance of a school and understand how well each school is serving its students.last_img read more
