Please contact Jen Larimore at 813-346-4423 or jlarimor@pasco.k12.fl.us if you are interested in assisting with this fun event for our first ever graduating class!

FSA/EOC Testing Starts May 1st

FSA & EOC state testing is just around the corner! Check out the CCMHS Assessment Calendar on our school website (under Assessments & Calendar) to see when your student participates in testing. Due to timing and facility constraints, it is extremely important to have your student at school and on time for each day they are testing!


Help your student out by ensuring your student


  • Prepares at home for their tested subjects
  • Gets plenty of rest in the days before they test
  • Eats a solid breakfast each day they are testing (FREE breakfast to students on each day they are testing)


If your student is absent on a day they are testing, then they will participate in a make-up session as space, proctors & technology to assess on become available after previously scheduled testing.

Free Breakfast for FSA/EOC Testers on Day of Exam

All students taking the FSA or EOC exams will receive a free breakfast on each day of their FSA/EOC exam. Students taking exams by grade (ELA, Writing, Civics, 6th Math) will automatically receive the free meal. Students taking exams not by grade (Alg 1, Geo, 7th Math, 8th Math, Bio, USH) will receive vouchers to use on the first day of the exam. Vouchers for the second day will be distributed by proctors during testing.
