Summer Reading Suggestions
Parents are advised to check their school website for specific summer reading suggestions. Below are links to additional resources for summer reading.
Pathways to Success
Students are college and career ready when they have the knowledge, skills, and academic preparation needed to enroll and succeed in introductory college credit-bearing courses within an associate or bachelor level degree program without the need for
reme-dial courses. Students need these same attributes and levels of achievement to enter and succeed in postsecondary workforce education programs or to obtain a job that offers a living wage and the chance for career advancement.
Parent Home Access Center (HAC)
The Home Access Center (HAC) is a web-based application that allows parents to view their child’s educational information via a secure password-protected website.
Acceleration Options for 4th or 5th Grade

Computer Based FCAT Practice Tests
The St. Johns County School District is taking part in the statewide effort of administering computer-based FCAT and End-of-Course exams for Algebra I, Biology I and Geometry I.
Each of these computer-based tests uses TestNav from Pearson Learning. In an effort to help students prepare for computer-based testing, there are practice assessments available from Pearson Learning that can help students practice using the computer-based assessment program from Pearson Learning.
The practice test program is named ePAT (electronic practice assessment tools) and is available from Pearson Learning’s website.
ESE Parent Survey
The Florida Department of Education is working with school districts to gather information on how well parents think their child's school is partnering with parents of students with disabilities, and would like to include your input. Your responses will help guide efforts to improve services and results for children and families.
St. Johns County School District believes that all students and employees be afforded a setting that is safe, secure, and free from bullying and harassment of any kind. In compliance with Florida Statute 1006.147 and School Board Rule 3.21, the school district has adopted a comprehensive policy prohibiting bullying and harassment.
"Know the Law" Guide Book
Know the Law is provided for you by PACT Prevention Coalition, the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, the St. Johns County School District and the State Attorney’s Office in hope that it will become a valuable tool for you and your parents or guardians. It is designed to help you know and understand the laws and their consequences as they apply to you. When making decisions about your behavior, you should always take the time to consider the law and weigh the
consequences before you act. “Ignorance of the law” is never an acceptable excuse for bad behavior.

District Improvement Plan
As partners in education for your children, it is our intent to keep you informed. As you know, St. Johns County District students continue to score well above the state average at every level on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT), as well as rank in the top five in reading and math at every grade level among all 67 districts. However, when a school district does not meet all state student achievement criteria or Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), for four or more years, school districts must develop and publish plans for school improvement. View the St. Johns County Schools District Improvement Plan.
If you have any questions, please call Mr. Scott Sherman, Director of Intervention Services, at (904) 547-7684.
