Sarasota County Schools has earned another A grade for the 2016-2017 school year from the Florida Department of Education, and is one of only two districts in the state to have earned an A every year since grading began in 20014.

Lake County schools improved from a "C" school district last year to a "B" school district this year. Ramona Boulevard Elementary in Duval County went from a "C" to an "F", and William Moseley Elementary in Putnam County went from a "D" to an "F".

Miles Elementary in Hillsborough County also earned a "C" this year. All three are charter schools.

"I am incredibly proud of our state's students, parents, teachers and leaders for their hard work, which led to these exceptional outcomes", education commissioner Pam Stewart said in a news release. "I am proud that more than two-thirds of the schools that were being monitored through the school improvement program improved to a C or better".
