JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It all comes down to this.

One year to get Duval County's intervene schools back on track.

The seven schools on the intervene list need to improve. For four of them -- Andrew Jackson, Raines, Ribault and North Shore K-8 -- the state has a close eye on them as they were given another year to improve performance.

Meanwhile, the district released statistics about the number of students leaving the schools. They refer to it as the Opportunity Scholarship Program, allowing parents to remove their kids from under-performing schools and send them elsewhere.

As of August 16, the number of students leaving each school for the OSP program is listed, according to Duval County Public Schools: 81 for Jackson, 114 for Ribault, 104 for Raines, 267 for Forrest, 184 for Ed White, 17 for North Shore.
