By Lauren Comander

For the third year in a row, about a dozen undergraduate students gained valuable knowledge and experience in a growing field through the School’s Compliance Boot Camp. Ranging from freshmen to seniors, they each returned to campus a week early from winter break to study the basic concepts of compliance theory and practice in the health care and financial industries. They learned from business law faculty members Anita Cava and Mark Shapiro, as well as professionals in the field, then applied the information in developing case presentations on real-life compliance failures.

SEM is a set of mathematical models, computer algorithms and statistical methods that function as tools to help with statistical inference. However, despite the flexibility of structural equation models (SEMs), there are few efficient and effective inference methods that can work with the kinds of problems with many variables and possible values that commonly occur in contemporary fields, such as genomics.

By Rochelle Broder-Singer | 3/28/2018

Also last year, the system saw its first year with no schools receiving an F; in 1999, when the state began assigning letter grades, 26 schools in the county earned an F. Two-thirds of all schools earned grades of A or B last year, and the district’s average was a B. In October, the district was one of four in Florida to earn a $15-million U.S. Department of Education Magnet Schools Assistance Program grant.
