Student Achievement

Student achievement is the level to which students are performing in areas such as Reading, Writing, Mathematics, and Science. There are a number of methods used to measure student achievement. The State of Florida uses the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) to measure student achievement in a standardized way around the state. Student achievement is an important topic to consider since it can influence future success in higher education and work.

FCAT School grades

The schools in this community received the following Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) Scores during the past five years. The school grades are based on the results of the FCAT and are based on the percent of students meeting high standards and the percent of students who make learning gains.

School Readiness

School readiness is the preparation of children 0-5 so that when they enter school they will be able to achieve. It addresses developing physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills. It is an important issue to address to ensure that children succeed in school. Learn more about School Readiness »

Kindergarten Readiness

An important result shared by the Children's Board, parents, service providers and others is that children are ready to learn and succeed as they reach the milestone of starting kindergarten. In Florida as of 2013, the measure or indicator of choice is the "Percentage of Children Ready for Kindergarten", as assessed through two key tools – the Early Childhood Observation System (or ECHOS), and the Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading - Kindergarten (or FAIR-K).

When interpreting ECHOS results (status), both Emerging / Progressing (EP) and Demonstrating (D) should be considered as depicting kindergarten readiness, while Not Yet Demonstrating (ND) should not. For FAIR status results, kindergarten readiness is depicted by a "High" probability of reading success (i.e. the equivalent of 67% or more of the percentage reported). The schools that are shown as depicting kindergarten readiness (i.e. those with a green check mark ) are based on two standards. The first is having an ECHOS score equal to or greater than the district-wide percentage (see the line graph for a 3-year depiction of district-wide averages). The second is a FAIR-K score of 67% or greater.

Free and Reduced Lunch Program

While school readiness is typically focused on our youngest (pre-school) children, most educators agree that all youth require good health and sound nutrition to succeed at school. This principle is reflected in the vision of the Student Nutrition Services (SNS) department of the Hillsborough County Public Schools: Healthy Meals Feeding Body and Mind... One Child at a Time. The SNS is a self-supporting agency with an $85 million annual budget that provides over 235,000 meals each day to students and staff, making it the sixth largest feeding program in the country. This indicator is intended to identify the respective percentage of students in each school who are benefiting from the free and reduced lunch program.
