School Improvement Rating:

 

Alternative school ratings, first implemented in 2008, are part of Florida’s school accountability system which originated with the Florida Legislature’s passage of Assistance Plus (A+) legislation in 1999.  Alternative school ratings are calculated as defined in Florida Administrative Code Rule 6A-1.099822, under the authority of s. 1008.341, Florida Statutes.  The school improvement rating shall be based on a comparison of student learning gains for the current year and previous year. The learning gains definition will be consistent with the learning gains definition for school grades defined in Rule 6A-1.09981, F.A.C. The school improvement rating shall be calculated for each alternative school that has chosen to be rated by this method and, to ensure statistical reliability of results in accordance with Section 1008.34(3)(a)1., F.S., has:

 

1. A minimum of ten (10) eligible students with valid FCAT 2.0 or FAA assessment scores in reading in the current and two previous years, including scores for students retaking state reading assessments in high school to meet graduation requirements; and

2. A minimum of ten (10) eligible students with valid FCAT 2.0, FAA, or EOC assessment scores in math in the current and two previous years, including scores for students retaking state math assessments in high school to meet graduation requirements.

(b) The school improvement rating shall be designated as following:

 

1. “Improving” means the schools with students making more academic progress than when the students were served in their home schools. In order for a school to earn an “improving” designation, the percent of students making learning gains in reading and math in the current year must be at least five percentage points higher than the percent of the same students making learning gains in the prior year in their home school. Schools that would otherwise qualify for a rating of “improving” but test less than ninety (90) percent of eligible students are not eligible for a final rating of “improving.”

 

2. “Maintaining” means schools with students making progress equivalent to the progress made when the students were served in their home schools. In order for a school to earn a “maintaining” designation, the percent of students making learning gains in reading and math in the current year must be less than five percentage points above or below the percent of the same students making learning gains in the prior year in their home school. Schools that would otherwise qualify for a rating of “improving” but test less than ninety (90) percent of eligible students shall receive a final rating of “maintaining.”

 

3. “Declining” means schools with students making less academic progress than when the students were served in their home schools. In order for a school to earn a “declining” designation, the percent of students making learning gains in reading and math in the current year must be at least five percentage points lower than the percent of the same students making learning gains in the prior year in their home school.
