Superintendent's Report 2-25


Recently, district senior staff and I had the opportunity to participate in a Town Hall meeting with School Board Chair Bev Slough. It provided an excellent forum to share information on the benefits and challenges of being one of the fastest growing school districts in the state. I encourage you to view the “Town Hall” link under “What’s New” on this page to review what was shared. I cannot stress enough that we are at a critical juncture and need help from parents, community members and business partners to make a difference and affect the change that we need to see in St. Johns County.

On the testing front, Governor Scott has issued an executive order to suspend the grade 11 Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) for English language arts until the Florida Legislature has an opportunity to consider legislation to eliminate the mandate. In addition, the Governor will be working with the Legislature to implement the Commissioner’s recommendations and reduce the number of tests this year. I have received many questions as to the impact these recommendations will have on our district. I remain steadfast in my belief that this year should be a benchmark year and school grades should be held in abeyance. As a member of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents, we recently sent a letter recommending several changes and adjustments to the FSA and other assessments. You may view this letter on the FADSS website at http://www.fadss.org/_docs/_content/2015%20Session/Pam%20Stewart%20Letter%202-10-15.pdf
