9th and 10th grade students will take the computer-based FSA Writes Assessment during the April 6th through April 15th testing window. Per the Florida Department of Education, no remote administrations are available for any statewide exam, so even our mySchool Online students must test at Gulf High.
The FSA Writes will be 1 session totaling 120 minutes unless your student has approved extended time through IEP or 504 accommodations. Please visit the MyLearning Announcements on Canvas for information on how to access the parent letter with important information, a complete testing calendar, testing rosters. We will begin testing with My School Online digital students followed by the traditional Face-to-Face students. Please listen to the following testing dates for each grade level.
- 9th grade MSOL: Tuesday, April 6th
- 10th grade MSOL: Wednesday, April 7th
- 9th grade traditional: Thursday, April 8th or Friday, April 9th
- 10th grade traditional: Monday, April 12th or Tuesday, April 13th
- Makeups: Wednesday, April 14th, Thursday, April 15th
Specific student information on the testing date and time the student can be found on the myLearning cohort page, posted by the cafeteria and media center. Teachers will also be sharing this information with their students.
Please note, MSOL students testing at 7:30 AM should arrive on campus by 7:25 and students testing at 11:00 should arrive by 10:45 AM. There is no transportation provided to MSOL students for FSA testing dates. Students must be picked up when their testing session has ended. Students who use extra time will have to notify parents of later pickup times.
MSOL students will be required to bring their device and charger if they have one checked out from Gulf High School. If a student prefers to have their own earphones/headphones, we encourage them to bring their own. No AirPods or Bluetooth devices allowed – wired headphone/earphones only.
As always, we will maintain proper social distancing. All students should be in proper dress code and wearing a face covering. If a student feels ill, we recommend that the student stays home to maintain the proper healthy guidelines and ensure that students have a successful opportunity during their exam.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us as listed in the parent letter.
