This just in from our friend David Pinter:
“Love, Energy, Audacity, and Proof (Leap) came to fruition at Finegan Elementary School this year. The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) results came in to our School District (Duval) on Wednesday, June 14, 2006. Florida schools are graded A, B, C, D, or F on a point scale from 0-600. A school that is rated as a “C” can have a point spread of 320-379. A school that is rated “B” can have a point spread of 380-410 and an “A” from 411-600.
Finegan Elementary had the highest point gain of any school in the Duval district of Florida (@160 schools and @125K students). Our school made a 73 point gain moving from a 373 (C) to 446 (A). We applied the principles of the Radical Leap and had Audacious results for children…”
