When the state transitions to common core assessments, students must pass the Algebra II common core assessment. SciencePass the Biology I EOC assessment and earn 1 credit in Chemistry or Physics and 1 credit in an equally rigorous course. Social StudiesPass the U.S. History EOC assessment. Foreign LanguageEarn 2 credits in the same foreign language. OtherEarn at least 1 credit in an AP, IB, AICE, or a dual enrollment course. 8 </li> <li> Slide 9 </li> <li> Summary of Graduation Changes Students who took Biology or Geometry prior to the 2013-14 school year will no longer be required to pass the Biology I and Geometry EOC assessments to earn course credit. Beginning with students in gr. 9 in 2013-14, the Biology and Geometry EOCs count 30 % of a students final course grade. No student is required to earn a credit in Algebra II and Chemistry or Physics to earn a standard high school diploma. High school students may earn a Scholar diploma designation if they satisfy course and testing requirements above-and-beyond those required for a standard diploma, e.g., earn credits in Algebra II and Chemistry or Physics and an equally rigorous science course and pass the Biology I and U.S. History EOC assessments. Students pursuing a Merit designation must attain one or more industry certifications. 9 </li> <li> Slide 10 </li> <li> Summary of Assessment Requirements Changes to math and science credit and testing requirements for a standard HS diploma: The award of high school course credit in Algebra I, Biology I, and Geometry will no longer be tied to passing EOC assessments. This applies to all 2012-13 and future high school students, including students who have already taken the assessments. Student must pass the Alg I EOC to meet the graduation requirement, not to earn credit 10 </li> <li> Slide 11 </li> <li> Summary of Assessment Requirements No student, including 2012-13 9th graders, will be required to pass the Biology I and Geometry EOC assessments in order to earn a standard diploma. Passage of the Biology I EOC assessment is only required if a student pursues the Scholar designation. No student, including 2012-13 9th graders, will be required to earn a math credit in Algebra II or science credits in Chemistry or Physics to earn a standard diploma, just for the Scholar designation. 11 </li> <li> Slide 12 </li> <li> Information to Schools Documents: 2013-14 Diploma Designations How EOCs will Count for Students 2013-14 Graduation Requirements DOE has promised new guidelines for counselors and students 12 </li> <li> Slide 13 </li> <li> SB 1076 Impact on Middle Grades Promotion Requirements 3 courses in English Language Arts (ELA) 3 courses in MG or higher math Alg 1: student must pass EOC to earn HS credit (no change) Geom: student must TAKE pass EOC for 30% &amp; earn passing grade in course to earn HS credit 3 courses in social studies Must include 1 sem civics course (beginning w/ 12-13 6 th grade cohort) Must take Civics EOC for 30% of FCG Eliminates req that student must earn a passing score on EOC to pass course and be promoted from middle grades 13 </li> <li> Slide 14 </li> <li> SB 1076 Impact on Middle Grades Promotion Requirements (continued) 3 courses in MG or higher science Biol 1: student must pass take EOC for 30% &amp; earn passing grade in course to earn HS credit 1 course in career and education planning 14 </li> <li> Slide 15 </li> <li> SB 1076 Impact on Middle Grades FCAT Remediation for middle grades (6-8) Reading: Level 1 OR Level 2 Must enroll in remedial course or a content area course in which remediation strategies are incorporated into course Repeals remediation exemption for middle grade students (6-8) who scored Level 1 or 2 who scored L3 or better in previous 3 years Math: Level 1 or Level 2 Student must receive remediation which may be integrated into the students required math courses. Bill does not specifically address remediation for Level 1,2 Algebra EOC BUT passing the EOC is a graduation requirement 15 </li> <li> Slide 16 </li> <li> SB 1076 Impact on High Schools FCAT Remediation for high school students Reading: Level 1 OR Level 2 on 9 th or 10 th grade FCAT Must be enrolled in and complete intensive remedial course or be placed in content area course that includes remediation of deficit skills Legislation no longer includes remediation exemption for HS students who scored Level 1 or 2 who scored L3 or better in previous 3 years beginning with 2013-14 cohort Math: Level 1 or Level 2 on Algebra 1 EOC Must be enrolled in and complete intensive remedial course or be placed in content area course that includes remediation of deficit skills 16 </li> <li> Slide 17 </li> <li> Impact of SB 1076 on Prior Cohorts Even though legislation did not take effect until July 1, 2013, many of its changes impact students in cohorts who are yet to graduate. Eliminates Geometry and Biology EOCs as graduation requirements or to earn credit Eliminates courses that were listed as graduation requirements (Algebra II, Physics) Changes graduation requirements 17 </li> <li> Slide 18 </li> <li> Graduation Requirements for Floridas Statewide Assessments Florida Department of Education/Office of Assessment Revised 5/31/13 http://fcat.fldoe.org/pdf/fcatpass.pdfhttp://fcat.fldoe.org/pdf/fcatpass.pdf 18 </li> <li> Slide 19 </li> <li> Prior Cohorts and Scholar Designation Generally speaking, students who entered high school before the 2013-14 school year may pursue a Scholar designation. However, a students ability to pursue the designation may depend on whether the EOC assessment for a course was implemented at the time the student took the course. Because statewide administration of the Biology I and U.S. History EOC assessments began in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years, respectively, students who took these courses before implementation of the EOC assessments would have to take and pass the assessments to earn the designation. Nothing prevents a school board from allowing these students to sit for future administrations of these assessments solely for the purpose of qualifying for the scholar designation or, regarding students who took the Biology I EOC assessment in the 2011- 12 or 2012-13 school years, retroactively applying the passing score on the assessment to the students score to determine qualification for the designation.
