iReady Diagnostic Assessments in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade are Going On NOW!

iReady instruction for math and reading can be accessed at home using a student’s username and password.

After completing the diagnostic assessment at school, your child will have access to online instruction to support his or her progress in mastering each skill.

The online instruction is designed to be both challenging and engaging. iReady delivers instruction using engaging, contemporary animation; the lessons are also interactive. The result is an experience that attracts and holds your child’s interest while also teaching important skills and concepts. These lessons are proven to help students grow academically.

It is recommended that school and at home usage combined should be 45-60 minutes a week for each math and reading.

"A Recognition of the Role of Hispanic-Americans in Shaping Florida Today"

Governor Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott announced the 2017 Hispanic Heritage Month contests for students and educators. Florida K-12 students are invited to participate in the essay and art contests. Parents, students, teachers and principals are also invited to nominate full-time, outstanding educators for the Hispanic Heritage Month Excellence in Education Award.

Governor Rick Scott said, “Hispanic Heritage Month contests give students an opportunity to win a four-year Florida College Plan scholarship while learning about the influential Hispanic Floridians who have shaped our state’s history. I encourage all of Florida’s students to participate.”

First Lady Ann Scott said, “I am proud to join Floridians across the state in celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. This is an exciting opportunity to recognize the many influential Hispanic Floridians in our state and throughout its history. I am also honored to highlight the work of the enormously gifted Carmen Sasieta, our 2017 Hispanic Heritage Month featured artist. I am so impressed with the students’ enthusiasm at the schools I visit and I look forward to seeing this year’s contest entries.”

John D. Rood, Florida Prepaid College Foundation Board Chairman said, "We are so pleased to have the opportunity to award the gift of education through these Hispanic Heritage Month awards. Our Florida College Plans are a great option for any student. More students are earning their degrees at one of our 28 state colleges, so we hope these scholarships pave the way for the academic success of these students.”

Cynthia F. O’Connell, Director of the Florida Prepaid College Foundation said, “This Foundation looks forward to awarding the winners of these initiatives. These essay and art contests are a wonderful illustration of our commitment to working with partners like Volunteer Florida and the Governor’s Office to find and support Florida’s next generation of talent.”

The theme for this year’s essay and art contests is “A Recognition of the Role of Hispanic-Americans in Shaping Florida Today.” Students are asked to share how Hispanic Floridians have impacted our state’s history and culture.
