The Florida Department of Education released 2013 elementary and middle school grades, part of the state’s school accountability system.

For more details on how the grades are calculated, check out the Florida Department of Education website. In general, the grades are a combination of the percentage of students scoring “satisfactory” or higher (those scores vary by test) on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests and the percentage of students whose FCAT scores improved from one year to the next.

The data includes each component of the school’s score and demographic data.

The department says the released data is still subject to revision and a school may appeal its grade. High school grades use a different formula and will be released later this year.
