The final portfolio assessment will be administered on Monday, May 14, 2012 at 10am. All students who have any benchmarks yet to master will be taking the assessment. Those students who have passed all 14 benchmarks in previous administrations will not be testing. Previously, a highlighted list was sent home (prior to FCAT) indicating the benchmarks your child needed additional support with. I have been addressing those specific benchmarks in school during small group instruction to increase their chances of success both on the FCAT and the portfolio. This is a very important assessment and I’d like to remind students to get plenty of rest this weekend, eat a healthy breakfast Monday morning and arrive ready to try their best.
