AC_Beyond2012E ALACHUA – The new Alachua County school grades for the 2011-2012 school year indicate that while many schools in the area are progressing, some have taken a step back.

The school district assigns letter grades to schools, using students’ FCAT scores to measure both performance and learning gains.  Learning gains are achieved when a student scores a 3 or higher on the FCAT 2.0.

High Springs Community School maintained its solid performance, receiving an A as it has every year since 2001.  Newberry Elementary faltered slightly, dropping to a B, down from last year’s A.

Alachua Elementary dropped a letter grade for the fourth consecutive year, earning a D after earning an A in 2009, a B in 2010 and a C in 2011.  Likewise, Waldo Elementary dropped to a D from last year’s C.

Grades for Alachua County high schools have not yet been assigned.
