The Florida Senate

HB 781 — Designation of School Grades

by Rep. Porter (SB 1222 by Senators Bradley and Hutson)

This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.

Prepared by: Education Committee (ED)

The bill modifies the criteria to establish a school feeder pattern by reducing the percentage of students required to be scheduled for assignment to a specific school from 60 percent to a majority. Accordingly, a school that serves any combination of K-3 students, that does not receive a school grade as a result of its students not being tested and included in the school grading system, will receive the school grade of a K-3 feeder pattern school identified by the Department of Education and verified by the district.

If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2017.

Vote: Senate 38-0; House 116-0
