Martin County School District Named Academically High-Performing
School District By the Florida Department of Education

The Martin County School District is one of just nine school districts (and the 
only school district in the South Florida region) to earn this prestigious designation.

Martin County’s rich tradition of academic excellence continues, as the Martin County School District (MCSD) has been named an Academically High-Performing School District by the Florida Department of Education. The District is one of just nine school districts (and the only district in the South Florida region) to earn this prestigious designation.

The Academically High-Performing School District designation is based on school/district grades and financial audit reviews for the 2017-2018 school year and class size compliance during the 2018-2019 school year.

“I can’t think of a better way to close out another fantastic school year,” Superintendent Laurie J. Gaylord shared. “This designation is especially meaningful because it encompasses the work of each of our employees, while also reflecting our community’s commitment to public education. Academic performance, fiscal responsibility and systemic compliance with state regulations are all factors that ensure we are able to carry out our mission of educating all students for success. If you come across a Martin County student, teacher, staff member or administrator out in our community, please congratulate them for doing their part in helping us to achieve this designation. It takes a village to raise our children, and this designation means our hard work is being recognized at the state level.”

In addition to Martin County, the following school districts met the criteria to be named Academically High-Performing School Districts: Brevard, Collier, Gilchrist, Nassau, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Sarasota and Wakulla.
