"There are accommodations for this type of situation. Many schools have CAR-PD where a student can receive reading instruction in one of their core classes if a teacher is certified. It's especially beneficial for students who barely missed a 3…"

"Its the law makers in Tallahassee who made these rules. I think the schools hands are tied because it is written into the state laws that this must occur. Not only do we have to worry about who we vote for the local school board but we need to be…"

"The important thing to remember is that it is by state law that students are put into reading based on FCAT scores.  The only way to change it is to change policies and to do that you have to get people out to vote. The upcoming primary…"

"These are two prime examples of why they should totally rethink their basis of this test. I really don't get it or understand why honors students who may not do well on one test have to do remedial courses.. That makes no sense to me. Hope you…"

"Wow! This here is one reason I do not like the whole idea of teaching to the test. Yes kids need to be able to show they know the work but with all A's, hasn't he done that already? That to me seems extreme to take those away for only a…"

Low Fcat scores = Double Middle school classes

My son has been tested for gifted 2 times (suggested for testing 3 times, once in second grade once in 5th grade). He has always received straight A's. He has received awards for high state test scores in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade. He burst out into tears during his Fcat testing over the loss of his grandpa (who passed away 2 days at home before testing). Yet the school is telling us that that because he missed reaching level 3 on his math by 2 points and reading by 5 points…See More

"I used to go to sears or walmart studio, now they have both closed, so I am wondering the same myself. Both used to offer better deals then school pictures, so I would take my kids there once a year for their yearly pictures. I guess we are left…"

"We actually hide both real and plastic, and I keep a count of what they have found to know what the still haven't found. We fill the plastic ones with money and candy as well. Last year, just to try something new, we hid the eggs at night and…"

jsviper replied to Jen Ryan's discussion Help! What's the stinging brier/weed in the yard?
"I believe that 2girlsmom is correct it's a fireweed aka as a fire plant. A cream like Lanacane would probably help, the stinging goes away shortly after coming into contact with one, and there will be some redness for a short while. They are…"

jsviper replied to Jen Ryan's discussion Should School Go All Year Round?
"Year around schools would still give the kids breaks from school, they just wouldn't be as long. I agree that the kids should have a shorter summer vacation, if they had a month or even 2 months off for summer that would give plenty of time for…"
