While the effect of Hurricane Irma on Florida is still unclear, in order to allow schools and districts to focus their efforts on preparation for the storm and on the safety and well-being of students and school staff, the Department will postpone the opening of the Fall 2017 Retake and EOC testing windows. All FSA and NGSSS tests will begin no earlier than Monday, September 18, and we will ensure that students, schools, and districts have sufficient time to complete all fall testing. Please see the revised schedule below:
- Monday, September 18–Friday, September 29: FSA ELA Writing Retake and FSA EOCs
- Monday, September 18–Friday, October 6: FSA ELA Reading Retake, FCAT 2.0 Reading Retake, NGSSS EOCs
Creekside High School will administer the PSAT to all students in grades 9-11 on Wednesday, October 11, 2017. The purpose of the test is to give all students an opportunity to experience taking a college readiness test and to identify students who might benefit from advanced coursework.
Students in 9th and 11th grade must pay a $20 registration fee in order to receive their scores. Please make checks payable to Creekside High School and write your student’s name, grade level, and “PSAT” in the memo line. Students may submit registration fees to the Testing Coordinator, Mrs. Mackoul, before or after school in room 130. The last day to pay for registration will be Friday, September 29th. All 10th grade students will receive a score report at no charge. Your student’s Score Report for the PSAT/NMSQT® will be available in mid-to-late December from College Board.
Students received an Official Student Guide to the PSAT/ NMSQT® through their English classes. This guide contains valuable information as well as a full-length practice test with answer keys. Please visit www.collegeboard.org/psat for more information.
