It is an anxious day for schools and educators across the First Coast, today they will be getting their grades.

MORE: FCAT scores show improvement in some areas

Each school will find out where it stands and will be scored with an "A" through "F" rating.  With the low FCAT scores that were released earlier this year, there is some concern those scores could bring down school ratings as well.

Educators say the lower FCAT scores are due to the fact that the test was harder this year.

The state Board of Education already decided earlier this year that no school can drop more than one grade level as a result of the FCAT scores.

Last year there were 19 schools in Duval County that had a "D" or "F" rating.

Schools that receive an "A" rating or improve by a letter grade could get cash rewards of up to $70 per student.

The scores will be released around 11:00 a.m., we will keep you updated.
