BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — While the Palm Beach County School District is promoting ”growth” with the release of the math FSA scores, a read of the numbers shows that schools which should be performing exceptionally are actually having issues.
A link to the complete report follows this article. The key metric is the percentage of students scoring a 3 or better. The statewide test is graded on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best.
Waters Edge Elementary School in West Boca Raton saw a 5 percentage point drop in 4th grade students scoring a 3 or better, and 4 percentage point drop in 5th graders scoring a 3 or better. Calusa Elementary logged a six point drop for 3rd grades scoring a 3 or better. Sandpiper Shores saw a five point drop in fifth graders scoring a 3 or better. Sunrise Park logged a 3 point drop for third graders and a 4 point drop for fifth graders scoring a three or better.
One standout: Whispering Pines Elementary in West Boca. While third graders showed a 1 point drop, fourth graders rose 5 points and fifth graders rose 8 points — again, these are the percentage increase or decrease of students scoring a 3 or better.
