Volusia School Grades Released


The Florida Department of Education released the 2017 school grades for schools on today.  Volusia maintained its B district grade and 56% of schools are rated A or B, a 16% increase from last year.  In addition, Volusia increased the number of A rated schools by 36% and reduced the number of D schools.  Two schools increased two letter grades: Coronado Beach Elementary (C to A) and Turie T. Small Elementary (D to B).  For the second straight year, no Volusia schools were graded F.

This is the second year that a more rigorous learning gains methodology was used which requires that students make meaningful gains toward grade level performance and beyond.  "As a district, we have made a concerted effort to make instructional shifts that are essential to teach students at the rigor of the standards.  Our students and teachers rose to the occasion to meet the demands of these rigorous tests," stated Superintendent Tom Russell.  "We are very happy that Volusia maintained a B district grade and are making progress toward our goal of an A district."

Overall, Volusia's grades are as follows (including charter schools):

  • A – 11 schools
  • B – 29 schools
  • C – 28 schools
  • D – 3 schools
  • F – 0 school
  • I – 1 schools

The district and schools will complete a comprehensive review and analysis of the data to determine successful instructional practices.
