Duval County Increases Number of A and B Schools

Jacksonville, FL - Duval County Public Schools has increased the number of schools receiving a school grade of an A or B to 101, which is more than two-thirds of the schools that receive grades compared to 85 last year, according to results released today by the Florida Department of Education. Additionally, the number of schools receiving a D or F has decreased.
This year, 101 schools out of 148 earned good or excellent grades, which represents about two-thirds of the district's schools. Nineteen schools received a D or F, down from 26 in 2008.
"These gains in achievement can be attributed to the hard work of our students, teachers, principals and district support staff," said Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals. "We are especially encouraged by the progress the majority of our elementary and middle turnaround schools have made."
Forty-five schools have improved their grades, 17 of which have increased dramatically by two or more letter grades.
The district credits many of the successes, particularly in the turnaround elementary and middle schools, to an increased focus and support to students and staff. Additional support and professional development opportunities will be provided to the schools with the greatest challenges.
"Community involvement is vital to student success," said School Board Chairman Tommy Hazouri. "Thanks to the tireless efforts of our teachers, community members and collaborative partnerships, the quality of education for Duval County students has greatly improved."
School grades are based on student performance as measured by the Sunshine State Standards section of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). The 2009 FCAT results released in May reported that more Duval County students are performing at or above grade level in reading, math and science compared to previous years.
Duval County's school-level summary reports are available here. Complete state, district, and school-level summary reports are available at: http://schoolgrades.fldoe.org. Duval County Public Schools operates more than 160 schools and serves approximately 125,000 students. The school district is committed to providing high quality educational opportunities that will inspire all students to acquire and use the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in a global economy, and culturally diverse world.

so basically if you live in an ok area of town, the schools will be fine. even if you don't, you can always send your kid to a magnet school (assuming they are smart enough.....it's not hard, trust me).</SPAN>

nice find

Default Apartments In Historic Neighborhoods?

That being said, there are plenty of subdivisions from Jax down to St. Aug that would fit your needs. Most of the areas near the beaches & intracoastal are going to generally be considered safe & family friendly.

(if you want some info on the Historic neighborhoods near the city, then i can be more help)
Can anyone recommend any apartment complexes in the Historic neighborhoods near the city? My price range is $600.00 to $700.00 for a one bedroom apartment with a pool. Thanks.
