School district retains C grade

For the third year in a row, the Levy County school district scored a C in the Florida Department of Education accountability report.

Despite earning the same grade, the district saw small gains in most of the 11 categories that go into the final tally. Items that factor into the grades include achievement and learning gains measures in English Language Arts, mathematics and science as well as achievement in social studies, as rendered by various standardized tests. The scores also incorporate graduation and acceleration rates, which take into account students receiving credits in dual enrollment college courses or earning industry certifications.

The districts biggest gains were in the areas of “college and career acceleration” and mathematics assessments. The district is two percentage points from a B.
