FLDOE Releases Preliminary Florida Standards Assessments Results

Thursday, October 01, 2015
Today, September 30, 2015, the Florida Department of Education released preliminary results from the Spring 2014/15 Florida Standards Assessments. These are not student achievement-level scores, which are expected to be released in January 2016.
District staff is continuing to analyze the limited information provided by the state today. At this early stage of the review, internal District analysis suggests student performance in Broward County Public Schools is projected to be higher than the state average in a majority of the tested areas.
“While staff reviews the results released today, our District will continue to support the position of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents regarding accountability,” said Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “We must do what’s right by students and teachers. As a District, we will continue to focus on providing a high quality education to ensure all of our students reach their highest potential.”  

Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) is the sixth largest public school system in the United States and the second largest in the state of Florida. BCPS is Florida’s first fully accredited school system since 1962. BCPS has nearly 270,000 students and approximately 175,000 adult students in 238 schools, centers and technical colleges, and 104 charter schools. BCPS serves a diverse student population. Students are from 204 different countries and speak 135 different languages.
