Florida’s K-12 assessment system measures students’ achievement of Florida’s education standards, which were developed and implemented to ensure that all students graduate from high school ready for success in college, career, and life. Assessment supports instruction and student learning, and test results help Florida’s educational leadership and stakeholders determine whether the goals of the education system are being met.
The following links provide access to general information about the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) and training tests as well as links to other FSA websites and resources.
Parents, please remind your students that if they come on campus for tutoring or meeting another teacher prior to school beginning they need to arrive at the appropriate time. Students that arrive too early will have to be sent to Extended Day and parents will have to pay.

In order to make the afternoon student pick-ups more convenient we will once again have alternate parent pick-up areas.
1. The Boynton Daycare Center parking lot.
2. The grass area behind the gym.
3. The grass area at the North end of the school by NW 14th street.
Parents who carpool will be given priority for these car spaces. If you are interested in one of those pick-up spots, we ask that you ONLY email Krista.Boyd@marion.k12.fl.us. We will only process the requests that are emailed. Thank you.
Spaces are currently full for these specific parking areas. Parents are not to park in these areas without the authorized, color-coded window display.
