JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Florida Department of Education says the number of "failing" elementary and middle schools has increased in Duval County.

That's one of the findings from the Department of Education's "School Grades" report.

For Duval County - 65 percent of schools were graded "A", "B", or "C". Also, the number of "A" graded schools was reported as 32, and the overall grade for the district is "C".

Duval County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nikolai Vitti says though part of the report is encouraging, there's some work to be done.

"I believe as far as teaching and learning, most of the schools that are "F's" already have a good learning environment, and the learning environment will get better next year," he said.
