FSA Training Tests
FSA (Florida Standards Assessment) is the state’s new assessment tool. Students have access to online practice training tests through the FSA website and are encouraged to take these online tests to become familiar with the system. At school, we will let every student experience this new test system prior to the actual test, but we encourage students to practice at home as much as possible.
Please note: The practice tests ARE NOT meant to teach your student any type of curriculum, only how to navigate and use the tools available to them during testing.
The website to access the practice tests is: www.fsassessments.org
Please make sure to read the Florida Standards Assessments Quick Guide to the Training Tests prior to assessing the website, so you will know how to sign on. The guide is located under the January Paw Prints newsletter on our school’s web page.
EOC and EOY Course Support
See our Academics page for the course support link for End of Course and End of Year testing.

Florida's 2014-2015 ESE Parent Survey
We need your help to make Florida’s 2014-2015 ESE Parent Survey a record success
Parents! Each year, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) surveys parents of children with an individual educational plan (IEP) to determine how well your child’s school is partnering with you and promoting your involvement in your child’s education. All states must collect this data as part of CState Performance Plan, as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Make your voice heard!
Read & Win!
We are excited to present our school-wide Reading Challenge. To participate, all your child has to do is read! Students will read from the Reading Plus on-line Reading program. Students who score 80 % or above on the accompanying questions, may log it on their Literacy Log. Students must read approximately 150 passages to earn the top place in the challenge. There will be weekly winners, and in December the top male and female readers will each be awarded a bicycle. To culminate this activity, Mr. McDermott, our principal, will be challenged to kiss an exotic animal! Please encourage your child to participate in our Reading challenge. Watch the Reading Initiative section under Academics for the weekly winners!
