Walton County named 'Academically High Performing School District'
WALTON COUNTY — The Walton County School District has been honored by the Florida Department of Education as an “Academically High Performing School District."
The honor is based on 2018-2019 school and district grades, 2018-2019 financial audit reviews, and 2019-2020 class size compliance.
The honor was last accomplished by the school district in 2012-2013. One reason for this year’s designation is because Walton County earned a district school grade of “A” for the past two years.
Walton joins 16 other districts that received the honor: Brevard, Clay, Gilchrist, Lafayette, Liberty, Martin, Monroe, Nassau, Okaloosa, Palm Beach, St. Johns, Santa Rosa, Sarasota, Seminole, Sumter and Wakulla. With 17 of 67 districts earning the designation, this group represents the top 25% of districts in Florida.
