Local schools awarded 'recognition' dollars based on student test scores

Steinhatchee School was the only school in Taylor County to make the list. Congratulations Stingrays!

Twenty-two local schools will get a piece of the $134.6 million pie that is school recognition dollars — an initiative that annually awards schools for achieving either an “A” or substantial progress on state-issued report cards.
