This morning at 10 a.m. every student and teacher across the country were invited to participate in walking out of school for 17 minutes to protest and honor the 17 killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High last month. Here at HelloSWFL, we checked out five schools — Cypress Lake High, Estero High, South Fort Myers High, Lehigh Senior High, and Cape Coral High. Despite the hype, things were pretty quiet from what we saw.
Three elementary schools sit within a few miles of each other. One with a “B” grade by state standards, and two with a “D”. All three schools have struggled with “F” grades in recent years — so what’s the difference? James Stephens International Academy went from an “F” grade to a “B” grade in one year — the greatest one-year turnaround in Lee County history.
The elementary school went from an “F” grade to a “B” grade by Florida’s school grading guidelines during the 2016-2017 enrollment year — making it the greatest one-year turnaround in Lee County history. Read the guide to calculating school grades here. According to Principal Ken Savage, the school had the second highest gain in the state of Florida that year. When Ken started his job at James Stephens, the school was at the bottom of nearly 100 Lee County schools.
Students and staff across the nation are invited to participate in a National School Walkout Wednesday at 10 a.m. local time to protest for action & honor the #Parkland victims -- but @LeeSchools said those who participate will receive disciplinary action. @helloswflhttps://t.co/fuEtLUmOuH
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
