St. Johns County School Districts once again lead the pack in the Florida Standards Assessments once again!
Numbers released in July 2021 by the state Department of Education show that St. Johns County once again led all 67school districts statewide in grade proficiency level and individual subject testing. This news comes amid one of students and teachers’ most challenging learning environments with constant interruptions to instruction during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Not all categories were an improvement. Math scores did fall just slightly from 2019-2021, however those scores still left the district in 2nd and 3rd place compared with other districts’ declines. "Still, to imagine what we were dealing with at every level with so many variables, these results are more than satisfactory, especially when compared statewide, and we will fill in any gaps we need to," Superintendent of Schools Tim Forson said.
St. Johns County School District also had the highest number of kids scoring a Level 3 or higher in the end-of-year course assessments in algebra 2, civics, geometry, biology 1, and U.S. History. They also led the state with 14% reaching level 5 reading proficiency and 33% reaching a level 4 in English Language Arts.
