Principals, teachers and school districts got their report cards Thursday morning.

School grades are based on just how well students performed on the FCAT. This year was the exam's newer and more challenging version of the standardized test.

Statewide, school grades held steady despite increased grading standards. Nearly 60 percent of elementary and middle schools received an A.

Roughly 6 percent received a failing grade of a D or an F.

High school grades aren't thrown into the mix. Those grades aren't out yet, but when they are released, they will include other factors besides the FCAT such as graduation rates.

Locally, school grades remained the same. In Lee County, the biggest grade drop came from Lee Charter Academy who went from an A school last year to an F.

In Collier, Immokalee Community School saw significant improvement. It went from an F school to a C.
