Your student may take either the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) and/or End of Course (EOC).  These are tests that all Florida public school students are required to take.  Though these are not required tests for home school students, they do meet the requirements for the annual home school evaluation.  Please keep in mind that participation in these assessments are your choice.  

Both the FSA and EOC exams will be administered over several days in February, March, April and May. 

**In order to receive a score for the FSA Reading, the student must also take the FSA Writing.**

If you wish to have your home school student(s) participate in either the FSA or EOC testing, please contact Debi Howell at 767-4122, no later than February 18, 2022.   


Home Education Program 

Home Education is a parent-directed educational option that satisfies the requirement for regular school attendance. All requests to educate a child in a home education program are to be submitted to the Superintendent via the Home School Department.

Bay District Schools Home Education Office assists the parents of approximately 1,000 students who choose to educate their children at home in complying with Florida State Statutes, referencing Compulsory School Attendance. Specifically, this office maintains records, sends courtesy reminders of evaluations due, and notifies parents of opportunities for state standardized testing. (Please note: state tests are optional for Home School Students). 

Home school families should refer to this website often for information regarding important testing, events, etc.
