At four local schools, half of third grade students at risk for retentionBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e SunWith the implementation of FCAT 2.0 and the more stringent guidelines it relies on, all eyes were on Palm Beach County schools last week as results were released highlighting how third graders fared this year. The new evaluation methodology, aimed at gauging the effectiveness of learning in the state, had many educators and parents wondering how their schools might perform under the new system. One of the underpinnings of FCAT 2.0 seemed to focus on early learning, and determining and addressing weaknesses at the elementary LOCAL CHURCHES HELP PARENTS AND KIDS RECONNECTBY AMANDA RAMOSGUY e SunIt is no secret that many of the youth in our culture today do not have the in uence of a father in their lives. Bridges at Pahokee a non-pro t organization operating as a branch of the Children Service Council of Palm Beach County -has partnered with All Pro Dads, created by NFL player and coach Tony Dungy, to combat this issue that effects many households in the Pahokee community and elsewhere. Bridges holds a monthly breakfast at various local churches in the Glades so fathers can spend time with their children in a neutral environment. Although the program is geared towards fathers and their children, Bridges encourages all men to adopt a child (male or female) in need of mentoring and a friend. Participation is not limited to fathers and sons; relatives, neighbors, friends, etc. are encouraged to make a difference in the life of a child whose father is not present.

None of it was done by the Raiders, however. The Eagles scored a 14-0 road victory by a combination of three things: a respectable ground game, a dominating defense from start to nish and a game-changing special teams play on the opening drive. Atlantic scored its rst touchdown on the game's very rst play, thanks to a 95-yard kickoff return by Brisly Estime that helped give his team a 7-0 lead with 11:44 in the rst frame. Glades Central's David Bailey had seemingly put his team in position to tie the game up on his own kickoff return a 98-yarder for a touchdown with 11:27 left in the rst. However, a blocking penalty call on Glades Central's special teams nulli ed the score and killed the Raiders best chance to reach the end zone the entire game. Other than an 11-yard run by Glades Central's Arron Baker (three carries, 20 yards) early in the rst quarter, there wasn't much offense going on for the Raiders. It was a tepid offensive performance for Glades Central, as the Raiders were limited to just 83 total yards for the entire game.

Pioneer Park ElementarySaying Goodbye School is seasonal like life. We work to pull that child out of their shell, target the needs, build those strengths and suddenly we’re preparing for goodbye. After nine months of developing, teaching, growing, investing our hearts in a precious life, we feel the pangs of that growth. First steps are pre-cursors to giant leaps. With mixed pride and heart tugging we will face the deafening silence of empty halls while hearing the ghost echoes of joyous laughter. We’ll recall the magical moments when the wondrous awe of discovery enthralled. The threads woven through our hearts so indelibly are ripping now. We remember the mountains our students scaled that no assessment could ever measure. Goodbye departing Sugar Bears, we will miss you! Congratulations to all future Roadrunners, Raiders and beyond! Keep on being awesome! To those returning, enjoy your summer and read, read, read!

STEAM Team Visits The Palm Beach Cultural Council’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) team visited Pioneer Park Friday, May 25 to ignite student discovery of the Everglades. Ms. Hillary Allgood from the Palm Beach Zoo helped Ms. Mattie Walker’s fourth grade class research alligators and write an alligator awareness newsletter. The four-page, glossy, magazine style newsletter was illustrated with detailed photographs and typed by students. Articles included the following: Alligators Are Important! Where Do Alligators Live? What do Alligators Look Like? Alligators Help Raise Their Young. What Do Alligators Eat? How Do Alligators Have Babies? What Animals Bene t From Alligators? Feeding Alligators? The last article ended with: “Once an alligator has been fed they will always come back. This leads to nuisance alligators who are then removed. Pioneer Park students would like to remind you to not feed alligators.” The students designed a ferocious gator mascot logo for their Alligator Awareness newsletter. Ms. Allgood writes, “Mrs. M. Walker’s fourth grade class participated in an eco-stewardship project with the Palm Beach Zoo hoping to spread the word about alligators! They worked diligently to learn everything they could on the topic of alligators, and then wrote about it! The class hopes that you will see why the alligator is so dear to their hearts and hope you will use the information they have offered to help protect them too!” Mrs. M. Walker’s students would like to thank the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County for their support and funding for this project. They would also like to thank the Palm Beach Zoo for providing the guidance they needed to complete their project. Another Everglades educator with the STEAM team visited Ms. Fletcher’s third grade class. Ms. Josette Kaufman, Executive Director of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation taught students about the amazing Everglades inhabitants. Ms. Kaufman detailed the diverse animals sharing in the food chain, circle of life and native habitat of this wondrously wild landscape in our own Florida backyard. Students enjoyed Ms. Kaufman’s visual presentation on native animals and their adaptations while examining and handling pond apples, gator heads and other objects from the Everglades. Ms. Kaufman is ful lling the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation’s focus on Everglades education, restoration, and outreach. Young Authors’ Conference Kindergarten through fth grade students are gearing up for the Young Authors’ Conference on June 5th, 2012. Students write books based on their personal stories or topics of interest ranging from ction to non ction, poetry and plays. The fourth graders, who have been researching Florida in Ms. Jeannie Brown’s reading class, chose to plan their books around their research topics. Students chose between printing or handwriting, personal illustrations, home photographs or public domain professional photos for their books. Ms. Chris Boldin and the Young Authors’ committee are busy preparing writers’ packets for all participants. This is an annual event in which the community turns out to hear our young authors reading their stories and cheering their published books. All of the books are gathered during the nal week to be read by the judging panel and are rated on a points scale. The winning entries from each grade enjoy a special dinner in their honor in which a professional published author gives a brief reading and writing tips. The students’ families enjoy the dinner with their honoree and watch as their child receives their trophy. We would like to thank those members of the community who visit each year to support our young authors and hear them read the stories and books which will become treasured keepsakes. Children’s Author Visit Author Michael Sterns shared his beautifully illustrated Kokopelli books with the students of Pioneer Park on Monday, May 21. Mr. Sterns shared his second volume: Kokopelli and the Islands of Change during his second visit with Sugar Bears. Students were riveted by Mr. Sterns’ dramatic multimedia presentation and thrilled to participate in the show via sound effects. Author Sterns regaled students with his character voices and funny facial expressions which cued various sound effects from students. Mr. Sterns began introducing Kokopelli by playing a Native American themed ute solo. His presentation touched on a wide range of topics, including con ict resolution, conservation, respecting animals and their habitats and preserving nature. Mr. Sterns’ visit followed on the heels of the Scholastic book-fair in kicking off the summer slide reading program. Sales iers were provided to all students of his books which were made available at a greatly discounted price. The books are 64 pages; professionally illustrated (a Disney illustrator did the pictures for his rst book), lap size, and are great teaching tools and dialogue jump-starters. Our young authors were also very interested in the publishing aspect of Mr. Sterns’ journey, which he shared during the question and answer session. We greatly appreciate Mr. Sterns’ wonderful presentation and hope he returns soon. The authors’ website is: www.grasshopperdreams.com. Atlantic City Training Ms. Victoria Parise, Science Coach and Mrs. Brenda Chavez, First Grade Teacher, attended the (STEM) Forum and Expo Conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey, from May 17 through 19. The STEM Forum and Expo serves as a springboard to building foundational skills and inspire students in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. During the conference, presenters shared innovative, enlightening, and challenging scienti c approaches to varying subject areas. Mrs. Parise and Mrs. Chavez returned from the STEM conference equipped to share with teachers of all grade levels, these useful applications, creative assessments, and hands-on strategies for student engagement and enjoyment.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 31, 2012 BY GABE MARGASAK SFWMDWith the start of South Florida’s wet season, rainfall alone is beginning to quench the needs of most lawns and landscapes. This means irrigation system timers at homes and businesses in the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) can be dialed back to fewer days, shorter watering times or shut off altogether to conserve water for the future. Irrigation system timers are often set for the dry winter months and forgotten, leading to sprinkling even during typical wet-season downpours. During an average wet season, from June through October, many lawns receive what they require and don’t need supplemental irrigation at all, according to the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS). Adjusting timers can make a difference because outdoor irrigation accounts for up to 50 percent of water use in South Florida, and up to 50 percent of the water applied to lawns is lost to evapotranspiration. Installing rain sensors or soil moisture sensors to automatically shut off an irrigation system when enough rain has fallen and checking the pipes and sprinkler heads for leaks are also key conservation tools. In addition, residents can conserve water and still enjoy a tropical landscape by following Florida-Friendly Landscaping principles. These include planting the right plant in the right place, utilizing mulch, and reducing storm water runoff. More information is available at www. oridayards.org. Because water conservation offers signi cant bene ts, the SFWMD Governing Board in September 2008 approved a Comprehensive Water Conservation Program to encourage more responsible use of water resources throughout South Florida. Numerous stakeholders worked with the District to de ne speci c regulatory, voluntary, and incentive-based programs and in-depth education and marketing efforts that help to foster a year-round conservation ethic. Simple water conservation practices include: Washing only full loads of clothes and dishes; Replacing aerators in kitchen and bathroom sinks with models rated for 1.5 gallons per minute or less; Installing lowow appliances, such as a dishwasher or energy-ef cient washing machine; Installing lowow water xtures, such as shower heads with the WaterSense logo. While reducing irrigation time during the wet season is encouraged, residents and businesses remain under the District’s Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule that limits residential and business landscape irrigation to two or three days per week based on location. To determine watering days and times in your area, contact your local government or visit www.sfwmd.gov/2days. Wet Season Start: It’s Time to Reset Irrigation Timers SUBMITTED PHOTO

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 31, 2012 Florida Governor Rick Scott proclaimed May 20-26, as Florida Water Reuse Week to bring awareness of the importance of water reuse to meeting Florida’s future water supply needs. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection urges Florida’s residents and businesses to celebrate Water Reuse Week to learn more about how easy it is to reuse water on a daily basis. “DEP is committed to working with the Florida’s water management districts, communities and businesses to ensure the environment is protected and future water supply needs are met,” said Greg Munson, DEP Deputy Secretary for Water Policy and Ecosystem Restoration. “DEP strives to get the water right and reuse efforts can make a positive impact to both water supply and protecting our natural resources.” Leading the nation in water reuse, the state of Florida reuses more than 660 million gallons of reclaimed water each day to conserve freshwater supplies and replenish rivers, streams, lakes and the aquifers. Reclaimed water is often seen in landscaping, agriculture and golf courses, the use of which drastically cuts down on fresh water use. Florida uses reclaimed water to irrigate more than 280,000 residences, 500 golf courses and hundreds more parks and schools. Florida residents use more than 6 billion gallons of fresh water daily, while producing billions of gallons of wastewater through daily activities such as showers, laundry and dishwashing. With simple actions to reuse water, Floridians can augment Florida’s water resources and allow traditional sources of fresh water to be conserved. Saving water also translates to saving money on lower utility bills. During Water Reuse Week and throughout the year, DEP also encourages residents to undertake water reuse and conservation practices to help to ensure safe, clean, and sustainable water resources: Collect rain water in buckets during storms which can be reused for irrigating yards, cleaning driveways and toilet ushing. Before emptying a pet’s drinking bowl, use the un nished or old water to water plants. Plant a rain garden that will capture excess stormwater runoff, limit topsoil erosion, reduce ooding, and enhance yard beauty. Take excess water from a bath or from washing dishes and put into the toilet for ushing. Wash fruits and vegetables in a pan, not under a running faucet, and reuse that water for gardening. Use a commercial car wash that recycles water. For more water reuse tips, such as how to plant a rain garden or build a rain barrel please visit www.protectingourwater.org. Florida Celebrates Water Reuse Week SUBMITTED PHOTOUsing rain collection barrels can help water gardens, plants and owers and serve as an easy way for Floridians to reuse water.

and deacons within the community, participation has been low. As a result, Bridges is placing the program on hold for the summer; the program w ill resume in September with many new ideas aimed at increasing participation. The breakfast for May was held at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Pahokee on Saturday, the 26th. Commissioner Diane Walker was among the community leaders to offer her gratitude to Bridges and the men in Pahokee who attend the breakfast in an effort to make a difference in the life of Pahokee’s children. She also thanked Bridges for introducing the program to the community. Bridges director, Cornesha Dukes-Chisholm, is thankful for the men who have participated in the program. She states that they have shown great commitment for the cause and have encouraged many of their friends and family to become a part of the event. She also thanked her staff for their hard work in organizing the events and the volunteers who have helped with working at the events. Rev. Willie Lawrence, associate pastor of Shiloh Missionary Baptist, spoke of his greatest pet peeve—adults complaining about children and teens but not taking the time to invest in their lives to make them better people. “Spending an hour a day is a rich investment in molding the future,” he said. Questions are asked each session in efforts to begin conversations between the children and their fathers or mentors. Questions range from “What’s your child’s favorite color?” to “What’s your child’s biggest fear?” One question proposed Saturday was, “What are you proud of your child for?” Even if participants were too shy to speak in the group, they were informed of the importance of telling children what makes them proud. The question that raised much conversation with the group was, “What does it mean to love your child?” or “How do you express your love to your child?” One father stated that many men feel providing nancially for their children is considered evidence of love. Other men spoke of having schedules so busy that the eventual effect is that both father and child are complete strangers. One child spoke of the thing he missed most—having his father around to spend time with him and teach him things. The event concluded with a challenge for the men: “Take your children to the park and play with them.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonWhat large black woodpecker the size of a crow has bold white stripes down the neck and a aming-red triangular crest? The correct answer is Pileated Woodpecker. This bird species lives and breeds in most of Florida. They are often heard whacking at dead trees or fallen logs in search of food. Pileated Woodpeckers have long barbed tongues that can be more than an inch long which they use to extract woodboring beetle larv ae, ants, termites, or other insects that are deep in wood. Nuts and fruit as well as bird seed or suet found in backyard feeders are often part of their diet. These birds have a large body, skinny tail, and long neck. Adult males have a red stripe on their cheek. Their white underwings and white crescents on the wings can be seen when they are in ight. Their call is a short loud clear "wuk wuk" or "cuk cuk" sound. The oldest known Pileated Woodpecker was 12 years and 11 months old. Pileated Woodpeckers have long chisel-like bills about the length of their heads. When hammering in soft wood with their beaks, they will pull their neck back while using their feet to increase the strength of powerful blows they make in the soft wood. Both sexes drum on trees. Males will drum in late winter to establish or defend their territory. Both sexes drum during courtship, to summon a mate from a distance, or when an intruder is near the nest. Pairs stay in the same territory year-round and form permanent bonds. When one dies the survivor might nd a new mate. The pair will make the nest cavity. The male does most of the work excavating the cavity up high in a dead tree or utility pole, but the female will help. The entrance is oblong instead of round like most woodpecker holes. They will line the nest with leftover wood chips. Females will lay three to ve white eggs between mid-March and mid-May which are incubated for 14 to 18 days. The young leave the nest cavity when they are 24 to 28 days old. For an incredible close video of the Pileated Woodpecker go to Cornell's "All About Birds Guide" at www.allaboutbirds.org/guide.

mie as its two quarterbacks in the spring game, threw four interceptions in the game – two of w hich were caught by Atlantic’s Fritz Narcisse in the second half. The other two Atlantic defensive interceptions w ere caught by Estime and Thomas Owens. Atlantic’s two defensive sacks in the game came from Keith Bryant ( ve tackles for a loss) and Todney Evans. Meanwhile, Glades Central’s defense was mostly impressive in its own right. Though the Raiders allowed a rushing touchdown to Atlantic’s Tevin Spells (11 carries, 79 yards, 1 TD) in the second quarter – an 8-yard run to the end zone that gave the Eagles a 14-0 lead with 7:24 left in the rst half – they gave up just 159 total yards to the opposing offense. Glades Central’s defense recorded an interception and three sacks in the game on Atlantic’s A.J. Puente, who went 4-for-7 passing with just 14 yards and a pick. And Glades Central’s defense forced three total turnovers in the game. Baker, who also played linebacker, forced a turnover on downs after he stuffed Atlantic’s Marcus Gaskins (13 carries, 54 yards) on a fourthand-2 play from the Glades Central 6-yard line toward the end of the rst half. The other two turnovers came on a second half interception caught by Glades Central’s Andre Fortune and a second half fumble recovery by Glades Central’s Felipe Martinez. “We wanted the win, but our main goal was to make sure the kids got out the game healthy,” Glades Central head coach Roosevelt Blackmon said. “We’re young, but we’ll get better.” Pahokee 22, Port St. Lucie 21: The Blue Devils avenged last season’s spring game loss to Port St. Lucie, thanks to touchdowns from Derry Brown, Jonathan Jordan and Jason Johnson. An interception caught by Trent Laidler in the fourth quarter sealed the win for Pahokee at Anquan Boldin Stadium. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 31, 2012 Florida Crystals Corporation and IDI, one of the largest privately held logistics real estate companies in North America, have entered into a strategic alliance for the planning and marketing of the South Florida Intermodal Logistics Center (SFILC) in western Palm Beach County the next step toward the completion of the project. “This exclusive alliance capitalizes on Florida Crystals’ resources as one of Palm Beach County’s largest private landowners and IDI’s proven success acquiring and developing 143 million square feet of industrial space in more than 566 industrial facilities across the U.S., Canada and Mexico,” said Gaston Cantens, vice president of Florida Crystals. “It’s an important indicator that our ILC project is on track and moving forward.” Florida Crystals’ 850-acre SFILC site, located between Belle Glade and South Bay, has received the county’s approval for up to 10 million square feet of distribution and warehouse space as well as a rail yard. The location is ideal to tap a readily available workforce and is proximate to key infrastructure, including U.S. Highway 27, enterprise zones, and rural areas of critical economic concern. The SFILC has received the enthusiastic endorsement of local communities who will bene t from the jobs it will create. With a Florida of ce based in Fort Lauderdale, IDI’s reach extends to more than 5 million square feet of developments in Central and South Florida. In Miramar, IDI is currently constructing one of the rst inventory buildings in the last ve years. This 264,000-square-foot of ce warehouse building is scheduled for completion in August 2012. “South Florida industrial markets continue to improve. This is primarily being led by the leasing activity in Miami-Dade County, which now has a vacancy of 6.1 percent, and Broward County at 8.1 percent. As these markets continue to improve, coupled with the scarcity and high pricing of industrial-zoned land in Broward and Miami-Dade counties, demand will start to push north and the SFILC project will become a viable option for large distribution users,” said Scott Helms, IDI’s SVP and Regional Development Of cer. “We were drawn to the SFILC project because we believe a site off U.S. 27 is prime to meet large logistics user demand.” Florida Crystals Corporation Partners with IDI for Development of Intermodal Logistics Center FOOTBALLContinued  1 PHOTO / NAJI TOBIASThe Glades Central Raiders are pumped up for their spring game against the Atlantic Eagles on May 25, played at Ef e C.

This year, start and end the week's festivities by taking advantage of one of Florida's license-free shing days. Saltwater recreational anglers can sh without a license on June 2 and freshwater recreational shers on June 9. There couldn't be a better time to get out on the water and try your hand at some of Florida's ne shing on these two Saturdays. Thirty-four states, including Florida and Georgia, will have license-free shing days during the J une 2 through June 10 National Fishing and Boating Week, a celebration of shing and boating. "Florida's license-free shing days are an excellent opportunity to share the fun, excitement and togetherness of a shing trip with the entire family. This also is a great time for experienced anglers to introduce friends to the sport, even if they don't have a shing license," said Nick Wiley, FWC executive director. "By having these events on weekends, we hope Florida residents and visitors will experience the joy of saltwater and freshwater shing. We expect many will discover a healthy sport they can enjoy for a lifetime." Saltwater anglers can try their hand at catching a red snapper, which will be open for harvest in Gulf and Atlantic state waters and Gulf federal waters on the June 2, saltwater license-free shing day. Want to stick a little closer to shore? Try your hand at near-shore species such as spotted seatrout or red drum. Now that school is out or almost out and people are in vacation mode, anglers will nd June a great time to introduce a child to shing or encourage a friend who hasn't been shing for a while to get on the water. Almost everyone in Florida is within 45 minutes of a freshwater shing hole. Dawn or dusk may be your best shing times, but if you go midday, seek out the shadows around piers or fallen trees, or look for bass and bream under oating vegetation mats and in other shaded areas to enhance your success. Fishing is a low-cost, wholesome form of entertainment, which is why the FWC offers four days when a recreational shing license is not needed. Can't make the June 2 or June 9 licensefree shing days? The FWC also made Sept. 1 a license-free saltwater shing day, which not only falls on a holiday weekend, but is during the popular bay scallop and spiny lobster seasons. Each year, the rst Saturday in April and second Saturday in June will be license-free freshwater shing days. The state's abundant resources, coupled with responsible freshwater and saltwater sh management, are why Florida is known as the "Fishing Capital of the World." All other bag limit, season and size restrictions apply on these dates. To make your shing day successful, chec k out MyFWC.com/Fishing for shing tips, locations and rules.

A time for rest, relaxation and reading! The KEC/Canal Point Reading Team will be visiting neighborhoods each week beginning Tuesday, June 19, in order for students to check out and exchange books! Readers need lots of practice and research indicates that students who do not read over the summer lose reading skills that have to be made up in the fall. Each student will be receiving a Summer Reading Folder which will include a reading log, books, times of the book exchanges and the Loula V. York public library summer schedule. Let’s “Get in the Game” and read this summer! Kidnapped In Key West Fourth grade students had the privelege to have the authors of Kidnapped in Key West visit our school on Thursday, May 17. Kidnapped in Key West takes place during the time period that Henry Flagler was building the east coast railroad. Edwina Raffa and Annelle Rigsby shared how they conducted their research for the book, developed characters, and collaborated. Students participated in several renactments, watched a short lm and examined artifacts from that period. Each student also received an autographed copy of the book Kidnapped in Key West! The students can’t wait to begin reading! KEC/Canal Point wishes to thank the authors and the Flagler Museum for the wonderful presentation and the generous gift of books!

With this in mind, FCAT 2.0 established a simple premise: that third grade students scoring a Level 1 on the reading portion of the assessment test should be retained for another year to have a better chance of catching up. While the recommendation remains simple, its execution may not be. According to the scope of the FCAT, schools may also use previous educational indices to determine on an individual level whether a student should be held back or not. It may be that fewer students than the percentage of those who scored a Level 1 on their FCAT will be held back, but that remains to be seen. As it stands now, Glades schools fared poorly when compared to other schools in the district. Indeed, among all of the elementary schools in Palm Beach County, two Glades schools posted the worst numbers when it came to highest percentage of students scoring a Level 1 on reading, and lowest percentage of students scoring a Level 3 or higher, respectively. A quick breakdown of the performance of local third grade students in the FCAT reveals very similar trends across schools in Belle Glade, Pahokee and South Bay, without a standout in exception. At Gove Elementary -the highest scoring school in the Glades -slightly more than a quarter of its students scored a Level 3 or higher on the reading portion of the FCAT. This is far less than the state average of 56 percent. One school, Pioneer Park Elementary, just narrowly missed single-digit percentage results in students scoring a Level 3 or higher on reading this year.Pahokee Elementary 60 students 43 percent scored a Level 1, 22 percent scored a Level 3 or higher Gove Elementary 152 students 32 percent scored a Level 1, 27 percent scored a Level 3 or higher Gladeview Elementary 56 students 50 percent scored a Level 1, 18 percent scored a Level 3 or higher Rosenwald Elementary 39 students 44 percent scored a Level 1, 26 percent scored a Level 3 or higher Canal Point Elementary 51 students 57 percent scored a Level 1, 20 percent scored a Level 3 or higher Belle Glade Elementary 87 students 61 percent scored a Level 1 (highest percentage in the county), 15 percent scored a Level 3 or higher Pioneer Park Elementary 86 student 60 percent scored a Level 1, 12 percent scored a Level 3 or higher (lowest percentage in the county) Glades Academy Elementary 21 students 38 percent scored a Level 1, 14 percent scored a Level 3 or higherThese numbers were in stark comparison to the overall statewide averages. Statewide, only 18 percent of students scored a Level 1, while most students, at 56 percent, scored a Level 3 or higher. State of cials certainly did note the struggle that schools with a sizeable population of minorities and English-language learners saw in their FCAT results -a statement that holds true for many local schools in the Glades.
