    Three of our schools have received consecutive grades below a “C”. They are:

    • Ramona Blvd. Elementary
    • Rutledge H. Pearson Elementary
    • Susie E. Tolbert Elementary

    Under state law, these schools must earn a “C” grade or higher for the 2019-2020 school year. If the schools do not earn a grade "C" or higher, DCPS must choose one of three options for takeover.

    Taking into consideration the options provided by the state, and based on the input from principals, staff, stakeholders and the community, DCPS is soliciting recommendations of the following selections: Option 1 - Reassing/Closure, Option 2 - Charter School takeover, or Option 3 - External Operator - for the four schools, if they do not make "C" grades.

    The documents below explain the options, what DCPS is doing to make sure these schools succeed, and the Turnaround Option Plans (TOP) Phase 1 submitted to the Florida Department of Education on November 1, 2019.
