Florida releases A-to-F grades for more than 3,200 schools

- Florida is finally releasing school grades based on tests given nearly a year ago.

The Florida Department of Education on Friday issued grades for schools that are linked to the state's new high-stakes test. The Florida Standards Assessment is based primarily on Common Core standards.

The preliminary grades given out for 3,219 schools show that 1,169 schools received A grades and 642 were given a B. A total of 184 schools earned an F grade while 365 schools were given a D. Some 859 schools got a C grade.

School grades were delayed because the state had to come up with passing scores for the new test. School superintendents wanted to pause school grades for this year based on the troubled rollout of the new test last spring.
