    Algebra 1 EOC assessment retakes on​ December 10 - 11

    A letter was sent home to inform parents that your students will take the computer-based Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) Algebra 1 End-of-Course (EOC) assessment on December 10th and 11th. FSA EOC assessments are administered in two 90-minute sessions over two days, and students may have up to half the length of a typical school day to complete each session. If you or your student would like to review the computer-based practice test at home, the practice tests and answer keys are available at https://fsassessments.org/students-and-families/practice-tests/computer-basedmaterials/index.stml.   Please see the EOC Algebra retake letter on the right under Resources.
