Florida’s Statewide Assessments
FAST Grade 9, FAST Grade 10, Biology, Algebra 1, Geometry, FCLE and US History.
“According to Florida law, students must meet certain academic requirements to earn a standard high school diploma from a public school. This means that students must pass required courses, earn a minimum number of credits, earn a minimum grade point average, and pass the required statewide assessments. Students who meet these requirements but do not pass the required assessments will receive a certificate of completion, which is not equivalent to a standard high school diploma. Passing scores for the statewide assessments are determined by the State Board of Education” (Source: FLDOE)
