TOP STORY | MAP TESTING
MAp testing is underway this week for all grades. This is the first time remote testing is being done in a large group. Why does FSA do MAP testing ? MAP assessment is a tool that helps identify strengths and areas for improvement for students. It also provides FSA with a great overview of potential areas to work on this school year, allowing the faculty to use the data to help meet the needs of each student. The most important thing when MAP testing even in hybrid learning ?….Be ON TIME for school whether you are an on campus learner or a virtual learner.

PROPER MASK WEARING
