Florida Standards Assessment - FSA
Students in grades 3-5 are currently in the process of taking the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA). The FSA structure has differences from the structure of FCAT. Our teachers have worked with our students to not only assure that they understand the academic standards, but are also comfortable with the testing format. Practice Tests for the NEW FSA were given in March and April. They are also available at the FDOE site and can be accessed through the link below.  Fifth grade students only will be taking the FCAT Science test the first week in May.  Additionally, you will find links to other online resources such as ST MATH and IStation that are excellent programs for students to extend their learning beyond the school day.
