The Florida Department of Education released letter grades for each of the state's 67 school districts on Wednesday, and Santa Rosa County showed the biggest improvement locally, moving from a "B" to an "A" for 2017.

Twenty-eight of the district's schools earned A's, while 14 earned B's, seven C's and one, the Suncoast School for Innovative Studies, earned a D. Last year, the district's schools did not receive any D grades. Pasco and Manatee counties went from C to B districts.

The percentage of schools earning an "A" or "B" increased to 57 percent (1,834 schools), up from 46 percent (1,531 schools) in 2015-16. There are still two charter schools in the county, which aren't managed by the school district, that received an F on their state report card.

In Santa Rosa, all but three of the district's 27 schools earned an "A" or "B" grade.

Florida's education laws recently changed, giving districts fewer years to turn around D and F schools.

A total of 1,589 schools maintained an "A" grade (660 schools) or increased their grade (929 schools) in 2016-17.

Most of Duval's 36 "transformation schools", which were persistently low-scoring, high-poverty schools, also improved grades or maintained a C. These schools in recent years received millions in private donations and public funds, including incentive pay of up to $17,000 per high-performing teacher. It takes all of us working together to improve the lives and education of our children.
