Measures of Academic Progress

A BIG thank you to everyone who took the assessment this week.

We also want to express our appreciation for your patience, grace, and understanding during this busy time of the year. While our sponsors strive to respond within 24 hours or less, you may be experiencing a slight delay in response time to your to e-mails, text messages, and requests for assistance due to the their duties as MAP proctors and enrolling new families. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Next week is the final week for all FPCS regularly scheduled FALL MAP assessment sessions for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.

For optimal results, it is highly recommended that students take the math and English/language arts portions of the test on separate days. Taking each section on separate days reduces both mental and physical fatigue.

Please make sure that your students are well rested and encourage them to try their best. We will have some healthy snack choices available in case they get hungry.
