    Black History Month Black History Month, or National African Ameri-

    can History Month, is an annual celebration of

    achievements by black Americans and a time for

    recognizing the central role of African Americans

    in U.S. history. The event grew out of Negro His-

    tory Week, the brainchild of noted historian

    Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African

    Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has

    officially designated the month of February as

    Black History Month. Other countries around the

    world, in-

    cluding Can-

    ada and the

    United King-

    dom, also

    devote a

    month to cel-

    ebrating

    black

    history.

    ePATs - All students must take at least one practice test per computer based test subject/grade

    level. (See the full explanation/rule from the FCAT/EOC manual below.)

    "Schools must administer the appropriate practice test(s) to all students to be tested using the

    ePAT scripts; however, if a student has previously participated in an ePAT for the grade level

    and subject test he or she will take, the student is not required to participate in an ePAT ses-

    sion."

    ePATs can be found on the Pearsonaccess website along with the scripts (resource tab).

    http://www.pearsonaccess.com

    Documentation of each student's participation in an ePAT is required and a copy of this documentation will need

    to be included in your District Coordinator Only (DCO) box at the end of testing.

  • ACT and SAT Concordant Scores Used to Satisfy the Grade 10 FCAT 2.0 Reading Graduation Requirement

    The Department of Education, after conducting a thorough concordance study, has established concordant

    scores for the Grade 10 FCAT 2.0 Reading passing scale score of

    245. The new scores that may be used to satisfy this portion of a stu-

    dents graduation requirement are a score of 19 for the reading por-

    tion of the ACT and 430 for the verbal portion of the SAT.

    Please remember that grade 10 students are required to participate in

    the Grade 10 FCAT 2.0 Reading assessment, even if they earned a

    concordant score prior to test administration.

    The Graduation Requirements for Floridas Statewide Assessments

    document has been updated to reflect this new information, as well

    as to include passing score information for the Biology 1 and Geom-

    etry EOC Assessments. You may access this revised document at:

    The Florida Department of Education has facilitated a review and revision of the Next Generation Sunshine State Stand-

    ards (NGSSS) for Physical Education. The draft document is ready for public review.

    The purpose of the review and revision of the NGSSS for Physical Education was to ensure that the content standards re-

    flect what a student should know and be able to do as the result of a quality physical education program. This review was

    conducted electronically beginning in March, 2012, and was completed in July, 2012. The review process consisted of

    four committees, with each of the four committees focused on one strand within the NGSSS for Physical Education

    (Movement Competency, Cognitive Abilities, Lifetime Fitness, Responsible Behaviors and Values). The state-wide re-

    view committees were comprised of physical education and health education teachers, adaptive physical education teach-

    ers, district curriculum coordinators, school administrators, university professors, and community advocates. This allowed

    for a thorough and detailed K-12 review of the benchmarks within each strand.
