Any current elementary school student who scored a level 4 or 5 on FSA ELA/Reading or FSA Math during the previous year’s FSA administration will have the opportunity to take accelerated courses in reading and mathematics through Florida Virtual School. Because these accelerated courses are a part of the middle school (Grade 6) curriculum in Florida Virtual School, the course content will be much more advanced than that of elementary school courses. Any student who successfully completes both segments of M/J Reading or M/J Mathematics 1 with a “B” or higher will be able to accelerate to the next course when he or she enters middle school.
If you are interested in exploring this possibility further, please contact Laura Austin, Coordinator of Virtual Education Programs, at 850-981-7860, ext. 101 no later than the beginning of the second week of the school year to see if accelerated courses are a viable option for your child.
