Florida’s Commissioner of Education, Pam Stewart has shared good news with the Nassau County School District. The Nassau County School District has once again been designated an Academically High-Performing School District for the 2015-16 school year, per section 1003.621, Florida Statutes. There are 67 School Districts in the State of Florida. Nassau County is one of only 7 counties in Florida to receive this honor. In 2007, the Legislature created a designation for a school district known as an academically high performing school district.   To be designated as an academically high performing school district, a school district must meet the following requirements:

  • Earn a grade of “A” for two consecutive years, beginning with the 2004-2005 academic year and have no district-operated school that earned a grade of “F.”
  • Comply with the class size requirements
  • Have no material weaknesses or instances of material noncompliance noted in the school district’s annual financial audit.

The Nassau County School District has been an Academically High-Performing School District for 11 of the past 12 years.

    According to the Florida DOE website for 2016 Nassau County had earned a district grade of a “B” or 61% of the total possible number of points. The bigger issue for our work force readiness is that in 2015 only 40.4% students were reported to have gone onto some post secondary education where statewide that average was 53%. http://data.fldoe.org/readiness/default.cfm?action=view_report_alldistricts&DisplayYear=2015&ItemNumber=14&SubItem=
