The State Board of Education is set to consider rescue plans for Florida's 12 worst-performing schools.
The board is scheduled Tuesday to act on the plans as part of an experimental program for complying with the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
Florida is one of six states the federal government last year approved for the pilot program. It combines state and federal school grading systems.
Most Florida schools in the past have failed to make adequate yearly progress under the federal program although three-fourths of all schools earned A's or B's on the state's report card.
