CORONAVIRUS: FSA’s Delayed Across Florida

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) testing which was set to begin in the first week of April has now been delayed by at least two weeks. That delay will increase if schools across the Florida remain closed for an extended period of time.

From the Florida Department of Education:

Today, Richard Corcoran, Commissioner of the Florida Department of Education, provided strong recommendations for extending spring break following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issuing guidance specific to COVID-19 in Florida. As all Florida school districts and public charter schools have different schedules, please click here to see the recommended spring break changes for each district. In addition, the department also announced that the start of state testing will be delayed by a minimum of two weeks.


Additional recommendations for schools and districts during spring break include:

  • Canceling all extracurricular activities.
  • Developing or perfecting the district or school instructional continuity plans.
  • Deep cleaning each school.

“Keeping students healthy and safe is my number one priority, and that is why we are recommending that districts follow the CDC’s guidance for Florida,” said Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran. “We are continuing to monitor COVID-19, and I encourage all Floridians to remain informed and take the necessary precautions that have been issued by the CDC.”
