The Florida Department of Education awards schools with funding through the Florida School Recognition Program. This year’s program award amount is $100 per full-time (FTE) student. The distribution of funds will come from lottery funds appropriated for improving school grades. Schools and School Advisory Council (SAC) committees are required to agree on how all funds are allocated while ensuring alignment with the School Improvement Plan (SIP).
“This recognition shows that Clay County continues to excel academically. We have nine additional schools eligible to receive the Florida School Recognition Award, which wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and commitment of our educators this past school year. This award is directly linked to school improvement and our faculty, teachers, parents, and students have worked extremely hard to move the needle academically in Clay. I am excited about the direction that our county is moving as we strive to become a systemic “A” school district,” said Superintendent Addison Davis.
