Kudos For Sarasota County Students!

Sarasota County students tested higher than the state average in every Florida Standards Assessment category, according to results released late Thursday.
Every grade measured- 3 through 10- outperformed FSA averages in English language arts by double digits. Although local mathematics tallies weren't as strong, Sarasota students measured grades 3 through 8 also bettered DSA averages in wild fluctuations, from a single percentage point by seventh-graders to the whopping 29 percent among eighth-graders.
Statewide, eighth-grade math scores were the lowest across-the-board category, with a 46 percent proficiency, a two-point drop from 2016. That's where Sarasota eighth-graders put the most distance between them and the rest of the state. Their 75 percent proficiency was 3 points better than last year, a 29 point margin ahead of the state average.
The results are produced by every student in the system-including charter school students, those with learning disabilities and English-language learners.
Sarasota County is one of just three Florida counties maintaining an A rating the by Florida Department of Education, and test scores are a big reason. Individual district and school ratings for 2016-17 are expected later this summer. Just another good reason to be living in Sarasota County!
