Elementary Grades in Hillsborough Schools Are Up

HILLSBOROUGH, Fla (TBO.com)- Hillsborough County's elementary schools performed better than the statewide average as the Department of Education released new A to F grades for many of the state's public schools under new grading criteria.

Earlier this month, the State Board of Education voted by a 4-3 margin to tweak the formula that allowed as many as 150 schools to avoid getting an F grade.

Hillsborough school officials said today that just 2 percent of the county's elementary schools received an F grade, including charter schools, compared to 4 percent for the state.
