SANTA ROSA RECEIVES ACADEMICALLY HIGH PERFORMING DESIGNATION
Santa Rosa County, FL – Santa Rosa County District Schools is pleased to have been designated an Academically High-Performing School District for the 2021-2022 school year by the Florida State Board of Education. The Florida Legislature annually recognizes and rewards school districts that demonstrate the ability to consistently maintain or improve their high-performing status, an accomplishment Santa Rosa County District Schools is proud to maintain. The most recent designation is based on Santa Rosa’s consistency in earning an “A” grade as a district, individual school grades, 2021-2022 class size compliance, and 2020-2021 financial audit reports. Academically high-performing school districts have been determined to have no material weaknesses or instances of noncompliance noted in the annual financial audit. This designation also provides high-performing school districts with flexibility in meeting the specific requirements in statute and rules of the State Board of Education.
“Santa Rosa County District Schools is only one of fourteen school districts in Florida to receive the Academically High Performing Designation. The school board and I are extremely proud of the outstanding performance of our students and the 3,700 dedicated educators that serve our students each day. We are grateful to our families and community for the continued support and the privilege you have provided us to educate your children!” Dr. Karen Barber, Superintendent of Schools.
Congratulations to our students, teachers, staff, parents and community members for your contribution to this continued high performing designation for Santa Rosa!
