About School Report Cards

​​​​The school report cards include up to five sets of charts that describe school data in the areas of: 
  • Courses and Programs
  • Florida Statewide Assessments
  • School Climate
  • Attendance Rates
  • Demographics
Descriptions of the data and sources can be found below. ​

Courses and Programs

  • Academies and Special Programs
  • Accomplishments
  • Advanced Course Work
  • Extracurricular Programs

Student Achievement

The student achievement chart compares information in a number of different areas. There are different numbers of bars depending on the grade-band (elementary, middle, K-8, or high) due to differences in assessments given at each level. School performance over two years is compared to district performance in the current year. Please note that the comparisons are not always entirely similar between schools and districts as students may have different mathematics, science, and history progressions in middle and high school. ​

For all assessments, the percentage of students scoring at Level 3 or higher are displayed. There are five achievement levels for all standard statewide assessments. Students scoring at Levels 3, 4, or 5 are considered to have ‘Satisfactory’ or higher demonstrated knowledge of the material instructed. 

The following assessments may be included in tables depending on the grade-band. Subjects with EOC after their name are considered End-of-Course assessments. These EOC assessments are required for all students taking courses associated with these exams. ​

FSA English Language Arts (ELA) 

This assessment covers material related to reading and writing. These two portions of the assessments are administered at different times of the school year and students must take both pieces of the assessment to receive a score. The ELA assessment is provided for students in grades 3 through 10.​

FSA Mathematics 

This assessment is provided for students in grades 3 through 8 who are not taking mathematics End-of-Course (EOC) assessments in Algebra I, or Geometry.

NGSSS Science 

The science assessment is offered in two grade levels: grade 5 and grade 8. If a student in grade 8 were taking the End-of-Course assessment in Biology, this student would not take the Grade 8 Science assessment. 

Civics EOC 

The Civics EOC assessment is provided to all students in grade 7 who are enrolled in the full year Civics course. 

Algebra I EOC 

Students may take the Algebra I EOC at different grade levels depending on their mathematics course progression. Algebra I is a graduation requirement for Florida students. All students must receive a course credit in Algebra I and score at Level 3 or higher on the Algebra I EOC to receive a high school diploma. 

Geometry EOC 

Students may take the Geometry EOC at different grade levels depending on their mathematics course progression. Though receiving credit for a Geometry course is a graduation requirement for Florida students, they are not required to receive a score of Level 3 or higher to receive a high school diploma. 

Biology EOC 

Students may take the Biology EOC at different grade levels depending on their science course progression. Though receiving credit for a Biology course is a graduation requirement for Florida students, students are not required to receive a score of Level 3 or higher to receive a high school diploma. 

U.S. History EOC 

Students may take the U.S. History EOC at different grade levels depending on their History/Social Studies course progression. Though receiving credit for a U.S. History course is a graduation requirement for Florida students, students are not required to receive a score of Level 3 or higher to receive a high school diploma. 
All assessment data are provided by the FDOE per their assessment results reports. The data for these reports was pulled from the FDOE EdStats reporting tool which combines yearly windows.

School Climate ​

School performance over two years is compared to district performance in the current year. The district surveys for parents, staff, and middle/high (6- 12) students will have a value between 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 5 (Strongly Agree). The surveys for early elementary (K-2) and elementary (3-5) students will have a value between 1 (Don’t Agree) to 3 (Agree). The district administers surveys created by AdvancED, the organization that accredits Volusia County Schools (VCS). 

Attendance Rate

The attendance rate figure is often referred to as Average Daily Attendance (ADA). The chart provides the average daily attendance at each school. School performance over two years is compared to district performance in the current year.​​

Demographics

The demographics chart provides regarding race and ethnicity. The table compares school information to the current year district data.


In Florida, students must be classified into a single racial or ethnic category for some forms of data reporting. It is possible for a student to select the category of ‘Multiple’ if one category does not adequately reflect how they identify. The numbers in these sections may not equal 100% because of rounding and other small categorization possibilities. 

The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) provides the data in this section through their EdStats reporting. These data have been provided through the FDOE Survey 2 data collection that occurs in mid-October.
