Dear eSchool Kindergarten Families:
We have important information regarding an upcoming assessment for your Kindergarten student.
Section 1002.69, Florida Statutes, requires Florida Department of Education (FDOE) to adopt a statewide kindergarten screening instrument that assesses the readiness of each Kindergarten enrolled student. The screening instrument is also known as the Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener (FLKRS) assessment. FLKRS must be administered within the first 30 school days of the school year (depending on the school start date). The FLKRS assessment is based on the performance standards adopted by FDOE for Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Education Programs.
Students enrolled in eSchool are unable to complete the FLKRS assessment from home but can take this assessment at their school campus. As a parent/guardian you must complete this form and return to your child’s school campus by August 28th indicating if your child will be returning to campus to take this assessment. Please note that your student will be required to take only one of these assessments.
If you do not want your child to take the FLKRS assessment on campus, they will be required to take the Star Early Literacy Assessment at home virtually while being supervised by their teacher.
You will receive additional information from your child’s school on the date and time regarding this assessment.
If you have any questions, you may contact Assistant Principal, Karen Davis at (863) 259-4001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
