Dear Families,

Florida Statute 1008.25 requires that schools report annually to families their child’s progress
toward achieving grade level expectations, including results on state assessments in reading,
writing, mathematics, and science. State assessment results are expected to be released by the
Florida Department of Education in late June. Report cards, including any state assessment
results, will be mailed home by June 30 for all students.

The following data are used to determine whether students have achieved grade level
expectations in reading, writing, mathematics and science:

  • Florida Standards Assessment English Language Arts and Mathematics (Grades 3-5)
  • Statewide Science Assessment (Grade 5)
  • District Assessments – Quarterly Checks and District Finals (Grades K-5)
  • Regular Classroom Assessments and Performance (Grades K-5)

At the bottom of the report card, it will indicate whether your child has met grade level
expectations for reading, writing, mathematics, and science. If he/she has not met grade level
expectations, instructional support will be provided to improve those areas. A Progress
Monitoring Plan (PMP) will be developed at the beginning of the school year and you will have
an opportunity to participate in the process. If your child has an Individualized Educational Plan
(IEP) that already addresses the specific areas of need, an additional Progress Monitoring Plan
will not be necessary.

If you have any questions, please contact your school’s principal.
