COVID 19 Academic Update
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.
