The upcoming weeks continue to mark a significant time for both our students and teachers in Duval County Public Schools. Students across the district will be provided the opportunity to demonstrate the levels of hard work and dedication they have put forth in preparing for the annual statewide assessments. Over the next few weeks, 5th Grade Elementary students will be administered the Florida State Assessment (FSA) in Science and Middle and High School students will be required to take the English Language Arts and Science assessment as well.
While we are confident that our students are well-prepared, we recognize the anxiety and uncertainty that often come with testing environments. As a result, we have decided to issue report cards on Friday, April 17th, in an effort to ensure that proper care and focus is placed on the state assessments without any disruption. As our students continue to work through the testing window, the district requests your support at home by ensuring that your child receives a good night’s rest, nutritious breakfast, and daily encouragement.
We thank you for your support and share great pride for our students and teachers and their commitment to educational excellence in every classroom, every day.If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your school for more information.
