DeLand, FL - Daily spring testing schedules for the Florida Statewide Assessments in Volusia County Schools (VCS) are now available on the website at vcsedu.org for elementary, middle, and high school students.
“The Florida Statewide Assessments required by state and federal law are more critical than ever so that educators and parents can measure progress and determine what additional services and supports students need to be successful,” said VCS Superintendent Dr. Scott Fritz.
The spring state testing windows for Florida State Assessments have been extended by two weeks to allow for further flexibility for makeups if needed. That extension will cause test results to be released by the state later than originally scheduled. Grade 3 ELA assessment results will now be available no later than June 30, and results of the remaining state assessments will be released by July 31.
No allowances have been made by the Florida Department of Education for statewide assessments to be taken remotely, even by students enrolled in a virtual learning option. VCS respects the decisions of Volusia Live and Volusia Online Learning parents who do not feel safe bringing their child in for face-to-face testing.
Despite the fact that tests can't be taken remotely, students must still meet assessment requirements for graduation, promotion, and program decisions. VCS says the testing is especially important for third-grade students who must demonstrate reading proficiency to be promoted to fourth-grade and high school students working toward meeting graduation requirements.
