Time to "Show What We Know"
Testing season is upon us. Our students and teachers have worked hard year and the FSA (Florida Standards Assessment) tests are just an opportunity for us to shine and show what we know. To ensure that our students have every opportunity for success, we ask that you please check the testing schedule and make every effort to schedule any planned absences or appointments at times other than testing days. Students perform better when they take their tests on the assigned dates with their own classmates and teacher rather than in a make-up situation. While on-time attendance is always expected, it is especially important on testing days. Students who arrive after testing has begun will have to take a make-up test.
Prior to testing, parents will receive a letter outlining important policies and procedures concerning the testing environment, electronic devices, testing rules acknowledgement, and discussing test content after testing.
If you have any questions related to the administration of these tests, you may contact Audra Minto at 494-563-. For more information about the Florida Standards Assessments, visit the FSA Portal at www.FSAssemments.org
