All Middle School students enrolled in an Algebra 1/Geometry course will take that End-of-Course Assessment instead of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) for that subject area. For example, an 8th grade student enrolled in Algebra or Geometry would not take the 8th grade FCAT mathematics assessment, instead they would take the EOC for the Algebra 1/Geometry class they are enrolled in.
FCAT Testing begins April 21st and runs through May 2nd. Students will be testing on various days based on grade level and subject area. We are asking parents to make sure your child is at school on time each day, and that any appointments or sign outs take place after noon each day so that your child does not miss testing.
End of Course Exams will begin the week of May 5th for Civics and continue the week of May 12th for Algebra and Geometry Students.
The 2013-14 Annual Customer Survey of Parents, Students, Teachers, and Non-Instructional Staff will be administered starting February 17, 2014.
Survey participants are no longer required to access the survey through Virtual Counselor. Instead, the survey can be accessed directly at this link. Parents are encouraged to take the survey at home or at school.
The Florida Department of Education announced a new assessment that will replace FCAT 2.0 exams beginning with the 2014/15 school year. This new tool will align with the new Florida Standards.

The purpose of this letter is to inform you that your student will be taking the FCAT 2.0 Writing Test on Tuesday, February 25, 2014. The FCAT 2.0 Writing Test is administered in one 60-minute session in which students write an essay in response to a prompt. Later this spring, your student will receive a score for his/her writing on a scale from 1-6 score points. You may visit http://fcat.fldoe.org/writing-prompts.asp to access writing prompt descriptions and scoring guides with sample essays.
