Florida Superintendents meeting in Orlando to discuss FSA testing

-
School officials from across the state will be meeting in Central Florida Wednesday. 
 
Superintendents will demand that education leaders review the Florida Standards Assessment test. 
 
Last month, all 67 of Florida's superintendents sent a letter to Education Commissioner Pam Stewart and Governor Rick Scott.
 
Superintendents told them they have "lost confidence" in the FSA. 
 
The superintendents say they do not think the FSA should be used to evaluate students, teachers or schools.
 
The state has already suspended most direct penalties associated with the new tests.
 
Students' scores will not be used to hold them back a grade, and grades will not be used to punish failing schools.
 
The scores from the FSA exams taken in spring, have not been released because state officials have yet to set grading standards.
 
The meeting of statewide superintendents will get started at 9:00a.m. at OIA’s Hyatt Hotel.
