Then and Now . . .
Florida's Original 158 Critically Low Performing Schools
One hundred fifty-eight schools were originally identified in November 1995 as having critically low studentperformance. To be identified as critically low performing, a school had to have had low student performancein three subject areas of reading, writing, and mathematics for two years in a row. Since the designation of these schools as low performing, they have received focused technical assistance from the district and stateas well as additional resources. It is important to determine if these additional efforts have paid off inimproved student achievement.
SCHOOL GRADES
School performance grades over the last five years show that most of the original critically low performingschools have made improvements in student performance. In 1999, the first year of school grading, only four of the original low performing schools received a grade of C or higher. This number has increased to 88 in2003.

), all schools had a greater number of students performing at high levelsin 2002 than when they were first identified as critically low performing. The average percentage point gain was54. This great increase occurred in spite of raising the definition of “performing at high levels” from scoring 3 andabove to scoring above 3.
STUDENT POPULATIONS
The demographics and student populations of most of the schools have changed little since 1995. Inparticular, the minority rate and percentage of students eligible for free and reduced-price lunch haveremained fairly constant.
