Nearly all teachers in both Charlotte and Sarasota counties are effective educators, according to preliminary statistics released by the Florida Department of Education this week. The state is nearly done with the evaluation process, with less than 27-thousand of the state’s 190-thousand teachers left to evaluate. In Charlotte County, 97.2 percent of district teachers were ranked either “highly effective” or “effective.” The percentage was slightly higher in Sarasota County, with 98.1 percent achieving a highly effective or effective rating. The state average is between those two numbers.
