LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Students and parents at Manatee Elementary saw some changes this year, based on the school letter grade from state assessment test scores.
Manatee Elementary is just one of five schools in Lee County that received an F. Charlotte County had no F grades, and Collier ounty had four F grades.
This year, there is an extended reading instruction at the schools that didn't perform well, to help boost state assessment test scores.
Even with the changes, some parents don't want their kids at the low performing schools.
"Of course, nobody does, and if this helps that's good," said Christina Depari. Her daughter attends Manatee Elementary. "It's an enrichment program in the morning or afternoon, like a reading enrichment, to help them better their scores next year."
