When some 300 golfers tee off on Sunday, Nov. 13, in the opening round of the two-day Chi Chi Classic, they will have something to celebrate. The Chi Chi Academy that benefits from the big event was recently notified that it has received the highest rating from the Florida Department of Education based on its 2011 FCAT scores. The Chi Chi Academy is one of only six out of 79 alternative dropout prevention schools in the state to be highly rated and the only one in Pinellas County.
