School Improvement, Accountability and Testing
Welcome to School Improvement, Accountability and Testing—a division Academic Services with Leon County Schools. The purpose of School Improvement, Accountability and Testing 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. With assessments, 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 aim to provide you the most up-to-date information on testing, program requirements, district performance data, and guidance for research requests. We welcome you and hope the information we provide meets your needs. If you need additional information, please contact our office at (850) 487-7875.
Announcements & Upcoming Events
As you may have heard by now, the Florida Department of Education issued an executive order recently regarding the state assessment program. These assessments, the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA), the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test 2.0 (FCAT 2.0), and the Florida Standards Alternate Assessment (FSAA), are typically administered each Spring.
Because of the Pandemic, these assessments were waived in Spring 2020. However, the FLDOE has affirmed that the assessment program will be reinstated for Spring 2021. The Department of Education has expanded the testing windows to allow for the schools and school districts to plan for the implementation of these assessments.
Each of our schools will be develop a plan that implements these assessments based on several criteria including time, personnel and facility factors. The schools will develop plans for all students- those who learn in person and those students who are learning remotely.
It is important to note that, at this time, the Florida Department of Education does not allow for the remote administration of the FSA, FCAT 2.0, or FSAA. School personnel will develop plans for test administration aligned to LCS practices and procedures.
