House Bill 7069 and EOC Exams
The Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Robert Runcie held a news conference regarding the legislation House bill 7069. Here is what we know so far:
- Florida Department Of Education has directed districts to no longer include results of the FSA EOCs in Algebra 1, 2 and Geometry as 30% of the final course grade for the 2014-15 school year.
- Broward Schools will not require these students to take a Final Exam in these courses. The quarter grades and mid-term grades will be used to calculate the grade for the 2014-15 school year.
- When EOCs in Algebra 1, 2 and Geometry score results and achievement levels become available, the District will recalculate student grades based upon the original calculation with the EOC counting as 30%. If the student's grade is now higher with the EOC counting as 30%, then the student's transcript will be adjusted to reflect the highest grade earned.
- Students will not be penalized if the result of including the EOCs in Algebra 1, 2 and Geometry as 30% would result in a lower final grade.
- The EOC impact in Civics will remain the same and is not affected by this FLDOE decision.
- Jack Vesey, Principal, Westglades Middle School
