SARASOTA, Fla. -- With FCAT scores coming out, how did Sarasota and Manatee County do, and what happens to students who are set to graduate but didn't pass the FCAT?

We already have some numbers from Manatee County.  According to results released today by the Florida Department of Education, the percentage of Manatee County third-graders scoring proficient or higher increased in both reading and math.  In addition, individual schools made dramatic improvements in reading, math or in both.

In Sarasota County, students scored higher than their peers across the state, on average, in FCAT Writing and third-grade Reading and Math test results

ABC 7's Christopher Brantley is working on this story and will have a report tonight on ABC 7 News.
