Testing for Distance Learning Students

The following is a message from the St. Johns County School District Regarding Testing for Distance Learning Students

Florida Department of Education does not allow districts to provide a virtual testing option for the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA), Florida Standards Alternative Assessment (FSAA), or EOC’s for the 2020-2021 school year. According to the state Department of Education, “We are not considering remote proctoring or at-home testing for any of Florida’s K-12 summative or postsecondary assessments in 2020-21”.

The Florida Department of Education has in the past stated that by statute, “Participation in the assessment program is mandatory for all school districts and all students attending public schools…”.

St. Johns County School District does not have the statutory authority to exempt any student from required, state developed assessments, except as specified in Section 1008.212, F.S. which primarily addresses students with physical impairment or children who have a medical complexity as defined in Section 1008.22(9) F.S.

Resources for Parents during COVID-19

Spring State Assessments: All state assessments for the spring are cancelled. There will be no Spring EOC’s this school year.

From the Florida Department of Education:
*Current Seniors:  If a senior is expected to graduate in spring 2020 and has not met the exit criteria for Algebra 1 EOC and or Grade 10 ELA FSA, or earned a concordant score, this criteria will be waived.  However, students still must earn the necessary credits and meet the GPA Requirement.

*Non-Seniors: The Department is waiving the requirement for non-senior students who are currently enrolled in a course that requires an EOC to take the associated EOC.  However, non-seniors who have yet to pass the Grade 10 FSA ELA must still meet this exit criteria by passing that assessment during a future administration or earning a concordant score.  Though non-senior students enrolled in the EOC course of Algebra 1 are not required to take the Algebra 1 EOC, they must still meet the mathematics assessment graduation requirement by either passing the Algebra 1 EOC (offered four (4) times each year) during a future administration, earning a concordant score, or passing the Geometry EOC during a future administration.

Attention Class of 2021
