Introduction:

At the beginning of each school year a comprehensive assessment calendar for both elementary and secondary programs is created to advise school personnel of district and state testing windows.



Description:

Per Senate Bill 1664 Student assessment calendars require board approval prior to October 1, 2013.

Section 4. Paragraph (d) is added to subsection (8) of section 1008.22, Florida Statutes, to read:1008.22 Student assessment program for public schools.—(8) LOCAL ASSESSMENTS.—(d) Each school district shall establish schedules for the administration of any district-mandated assessment and approve the schedules as an agenda item at a district school board meeting. The school district shall publish the testing schedules on its website, clearly specifying the district-mandated assessments, and report the schedules to the Department of Education by October 1 of each year.

 

Strategic Plan Goal:  All students will or exceed high academic standards 
 

 
 
 


Recommendation:

The staff respectfully requests School Board Approval of the 2013-14 Elementary and Secondary Assessment Calendars.
