Levy looks to improve FCATs

Faculty researching successful districts to improve after latest scores are released

By Mike Capshaw, Staff Writer

Florida's Comprehensive Assessment Test grades are in for a few middle and elementary schools in Levy County. Despite As and Bs across the board, superintendent Bob Hastings wasn't excited with the results.

"When you're green, you're growing," Hastings said. "When you're ripe, you're rotting. We want to keep growing and progressing. That's where we're at."

Hastings said that while the FCAT scores from the 2010-11 school year are "good," he's not satisfied with the results. This summer, faculty has been researching what has been successful in other school districts, with teachers closely examining what's being done in Baker and Citrus counties, where scores are traditionally high. Board member Paige Brookins pointed that out during Tuesday's board meeting, applauding the efforts of a couple of elementary teachers who traveled to other schools "even when they're not getting paid" to do so.
