BAFS testing will take place at Parkway and across the District beginning Monday, October 27th.
Testing this year is different in that the assessments are taking place during your student’s classroom period. The tests are multiple choice, and will be given in all Language Arts classes, all Math classes, Civics grade 7 classes, and Science grades 5/8 only.
It is very important that your child is in attendance each day that week and they are here at school no later than 8:00am. Please speak with your child and make sure that you emphasize the importance of being to each of their classes on time- early is even better! We are asking that you limit sign outs and doctor appts. that week, as students need to be present to test and receive a score. If a test has two sessions over two days, they must take BOTH sessions.
In 2014, Conversation with the District continues its pursuit to engage the community in discussions that will constantly challenge the District to better prepare today’s students to be successful in tomorrow’s world. As a valued member of our community, we look forward to you joining our Conversations.

The Greater Fort Lauderdale National College Fair is Tuesday, October 21, 2014, at the Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. The National College Fair is free to students and parents.
As the process of applying to and selecting a college becomes more and more competitive and complex, students and parents need all the help and information they can get. Attending a college fair is the best way to gather information about colleges and universities. The National College Fair program provides valuable resources for students and parents attempting to navigate the college-admission process.
The fair allows students and parents to meet one-on-one with admission representatives from a wide range of national and international, public and private, two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Participants will learn about admission requirements, financial aid, course offerings, and campus environment, as well as other information pertinent to the college-selection process. At the fair’s counseling center, students and parents can discuss their individual needs with college experts.
