On Friday, July 20, 2012, the Florida Department of Education notified 40 superintendents around the State of Florida about preliminary revisions to the initial school grades released earlier this month.

The A to F school grades report for Florida’s elementary, middle and combination schools (not including those with high school grades) was calculated by the Florida Department of Education, validated independently by Florida State University, and released on July 11.

During the continuous review process however, the Florida Department of Education said that it identified preliminary revisions for both schools and districts that will result in increases. The revisions involved 213 of the initially graded 2,586 schools as follows:

  • 116 school grades changed from a B to an A.
  • 55 school grades changed from a C to a B.
  • 35 school grades changed from a D to a C.
  • 7 school grades changed from an F to a D.
