Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Next up, FCAT retakes for seniors

Fcat_2 The season of FCAT results is officially upon us, with the second set of data in two weeks due out Thursday morning.

Florida's K-12 chancellor, Frances Haithcock, has sent a memo to superintendents alerting them that the scores for seniors who retook the exams hoping to graduate on time will be online for districts at 6 a.m. Thursday. By 8:30 a.m., state and district summaries should be in the e-mail to all superintendents, testing coordinators and reporters.

But don't go looking for individual scores just yet. Those will be online next Tuesday, May 20 (if the state site for parents works - it didn't for a time this week, the Stuart News reports), and delivered to schools a couple of days later. See our post on last week's writing scores here. And be sure to check back Thursday for whatever info we can cobble together on the retakes.
