FOX23 talked to parents at Burroughs Elementary School, their grade dropped from a D to an F.

The school's principal said she brought in ambulances and had teachers wear white lab coats to stress how urgent the need to improve this year.

And even though the state believes her school is still in critical condition, she says it has improved.

"Is the F fair?" asked FOX23's Price McKeon.

"I don't think so ... it's not fair," said Principal Tammy Britton.

Britton placed emphasis on the need to improve with students this year.

"It keeps us on track it keeps us focused," she said.

She says they did just that.

"Math in 5th grade 5 and we rose to 32," she said.

A chart posted in her office compares last year test scores to this year's preliminary test scores they got in September.

The chart shows a jump in growth.

"It's almost a sense of disrespect for our commitment of why we come here every day and do without any regrets," she.said.
