Scores will be officially available to students on June 12, 2008 at www.fcatparentnetwork.com
In Florida students in grades 3 through 10 are required to take the State Standardized FCAT, the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, in math and reading. A level three on the FCAT means that the student is working at grade level. A level 1 or 2 means that the students are encouraged to attend 4 weeks of summer school, beginning June 11, 2008.
In Florida, in 6th grade, 6 out of 10 of the top scoring classes were from right here in Brevard County.
This is the 8th year in a row that Brevard 6th graders ranked at the top of the state of Florida in FCAT scores.
Brevard was 5th of 67 districts in all grades for students passing the reading portion of the test.
Brevard was 8th of 67 districts in all grades for students passing the math portion of the test.
In six Brevard Public Schools, 100% of students scored a level 3 or higher in either math or reading. Those schools included Freedom 7 Elementary, Stevenson Elementary, West Melbourne Elementary, Royal Palm Charter School and West Shore Jr/Sr High.
For students that scored a level 1 or 2 on the FCAT, several factors are taken into consideration as to whether the student will be retained in their current grade. Their grades are taken into consideration, including their exam grades and their daily performance. Not all level 1 and 2 students are required to attend summer school.
