BRADENTON – The Florida Department of Education has increased the Manatee County School District's ranking on student performance from the last school year. The district moved up one spot to number 3 among eight other similar-sized districts, and up three spots to number 37 in rankings for all 67 school districts in the state.
The issued student performance rankings for the 2013-2014 school year were based on state accountability tests. The news comes two months after the release of results that saw the Manatee District make considerable gains in its FCAT scores.
In a statement submitted in a district press release sent out Monday, Superintendent Rick Mills said, “This is another exciting indication that we are heading in the right direction as a district and that the hard work of our students and teachers is paying off.” Mills added, “Again, I want to thank all of our students, parents, teachers, administrators and support employees for making these impressive achievements a reality.”
