Florida Assessment Testing Resumes Thursday

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (From Palm Beach County School District) — Superintendent E. Wayne Gent directed middle and high school principals to resume the computer-based writing portion of the Florida Standards Assessment tests, which had been suspended due to technical issues the state was experiencing with the testing portal.

Florida Department of Education officials have expressed their confidence that the software issues that created problems this week had been resolved. District officials also have been closely monitoring progress in other districts before making the decision to resume tests for students in eighth, ninth and 10th grades.
Palm Beach County students in grades eight through 10 had begun taking the writing portion of the Florida Standards Assessment on Monday, but test-taking was suspended after 10 district-operated and charter schools reported problems logging into the state’s portal.

The state Department of Education gives schools a window during which they can schedule Florida Standards Assessment testing. For a schedule of testing dates in Palm Beach County’s public schools, visit the Parents section of www.palmbeachschools.org.
