Miami-Dade Schools Have Historic School Year with no 'F' Schools

The state Department of Education released its annual school grades Wednesday and despite a high number of low-income and immigrant students, Miami-Dade recorded a milestone: the elimination of all F-rated district schools. That’s not happened before in the county, district officials said. Miami-Dade has seen the number of failing traditional public schools plummet in recent years, from 16 F-rated schools in 2015 to seven last year. That’s compared to 26 schools with an F grade in 1999, the first year the state assigned letter grades to schools.
