Fl. Standards Assessment (FSA) Info Student Challenges

Discovery Academy will be hosting monthly Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) meetings to update parents on the changes relating to testing in Florida, provide valuable resources for parents to help their child at home, and answer any questions regarding the changes. In addition to the sessions, Discovery has created an informational website that will contain all of the updates and any handouts given at the meetings. The site will provide the dates and times for the informational meetings, links to Math and English-Language Arts (ELA) resources to use at home, and a timeline of concepts for both Math and ELA. In addition to FSA information, the site will contain information regarding monthly Math and ELA challenges that will be available to the students.
