Welcome to Testing, Research, and Evaluation (TR&E)—a division of the Teaching and Learning Department in LCS. The purpose of TR&E is to administer all district and state testing programs, analyze and share related data, and support district initiatives on student achievement.
Assessing students and monitoring their progress is an important part of what we do in TR&E. The Florida State Board of Education approved the Florida Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts in February 2014. Those standards have been fully implemented in grades K-12. In 2014-15, we began administering the associated statewide assessments to help us measure our students’ progress on these standards. With new assessments in place, we understand that parents, students, and the school community may have questions. We encourage you to visit this site regularly to stay informed and to access related information.
In addition to new standards, teacher evaluation has evolved due to state legislation. We continue to apply changes as they are approved and keep our instructional staff apprised of modifications. We recommend that you use this site to stay informed on how student performance measures impact the teacher evaluation.
