Spring Test Scores Released by State
Posted on 07/02/2019

The Florida Department of Education released the spring test score results last week. In practically every area Flagler Schools students met or exceeded state averages and showed marked growth in several subject areas.

“I am proud of our students, teachers, and staff for the hard work they put in each year,” says James Tager, Superintendent of Flagler Schools. “While these scores are simply a snapshot of where our students are, it shows we are accomplishing a lot in our schools as we prepare our children for life after high school graduation.”

The results were from: the English Language Arts (ELA) Florida Standards Assessments for grades 3-10; Mathematics FSA for grades 3-8; Algebra I and Geometry FSA for all students; Civics, Biology I, and US History End of Course Exams for all students; Statewide science assessment for grades 5 and 8.

A few of our district-wide highlights are: (Percentage earning a level 3 or higher compared to last year. This is designated “satisfactory” or “passing” by the State Board of Education.)

  • ELA scores among 3rd through 7th graders, as well as 9th graders were higher than last year.

  • Non-EOC math scores among 3rd and 6th-8th graders rose, compared to last year.

  • Civics, Geometry, Biology I, and US History EOCs all increased over last year.

Looking at the largest gains among our individual schools:

  • Bunnell Elementary: Grade 6 math up 15%

  • Belle Terre Elementary: Grade 6 ELA up 6%

  • Old Kings Elementary: Grade 4 ELA up 11%
