BCPS 2022 School Grades Announced
On Thursday, July 7, 2022, the Florida Department of Education released school grades for the 2021/22 school year. The overall results for Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) show continued progress on the state’s school grades ratings. BCPS earned a District grade of “B,” narrowly missing an “A” by one percentage point.
“I am incredibly proud of our students, teachers and school administrators, and thankful for the unwavering support of our School Board. The grades reflect the hard work, dedication and commitment to ensure our students had the learning opportunities needed to overcome the unfinished learning brought upon by the pandemic,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Vickie L. Cartwright. “As we prepare the District for the upcoming school year, we are encouraged and motivated to earn and surpass the one percentage point needed to make Broward County Public Schools an “A” school district and remain steadfast in our commitment to improve student achievement at all schools.”
When comparing school grades between 2019 and 2022:
- 45% of BCPS traditional schools remained or improved to an “A”
- 55% of BCPS traditional schools remained or improved to an “A” or “B”
- 79% of BCPS traditional schools remained or improved to an “A,” “B” or “C”
- BCPS has a higher percentage of schools earning a grade of “A” or “B” than the state average
School grades are based on a variety of factors, including results from the Florida Standards Assessments and End of Course exams, levels of achievement, learning gains, industry certifications earned and graduation rates.
