State Standardized Tests Are Right Around the Corner

Testing: What Parents Can Do
Parents have asked how to prepare their children for the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) or similar standardized tests. Since teachers have been working on test taking strategies, the best thing a parent can do at this point is ensure their children are properly nourished, organized and rested on the days of testing.
