    FSA Algebra 1 EOC MCPS Online Students Only!

    FSA Algebra EOC testing will begin on Monday September 21st and will continue through Tuesday September 22nd. This is a two day test. Session One will be given on Monday and Session Two will be given on Tuesday. Testers will need to arrive to the school prior to 8:30 a.m. on each day of testing. Morning drop off will occur through the car line and students will report to the Auditorium. Students will then need to locate a testing room locator in the Auditorium or a CAT Crew student to find the location in which they will be testing. Once the bell rings at 8:35, students will be dismissed by intercom to their testing locations. This is approximately a 90 minute test and students should be finished by 11:00 a.m. When all students have completed the assessment CATS Online students will proceed to the car line (in front of the Auditorium) for pick up. Please note: If you miss day one we will have to reschedule your testing session as you will not be eligible to begin day two. Please make sure that you bring your student ID from last year and make sure that you are wearing a proper face covering.
    Note: If you have a brick and mortar student, their first block teacher will provide them with a testing pass to direct them to their testing location.

Instructional Expectations

  • CATS Online Instructional Expectation

    • CATS Online students will follow the same bell schedule as on campus students. CATS Online students will adhere to same amount of time in class as on campus students and receive the same instruction as on campus students just in a virtual setting.

    • Attendance will be taken by the teacher at the beginning of each class period. For example, first period begins at 8:35am and attendance will be taken at that time.

    • Online classes will be the same duration as on campus classes with active teaching and learning through the entire period. It is the expectation that students remain in the virtual class setting for the entire class. Leaving the virtual class will result in being marked absent for the duration of the class.

    • Students will have time for lunch at the same time their teacher has time for lunch. The duration of lunch times will match the same time frames as lunch on campus. The teacher will be responsible for taking attendance again upon return from lunch time in the virtual setting.

    • The same rules and procedures that are evident in the classroom on campus will also be evident in the online classroom. Students are expected to abide by all rules and procedures.

    • If an online student needs to step away from the computer for a restroom break they must ask the teacher for permission and notify the teacher they are stepping away.

    • Cameras and/or video must be on for the entire class period as verification the online student is still present in the class.

    • Please dress appropriately for online learning.

    • Online students should create a work space free from excessive noise or distractions that will interfere with learning.

    • We are working to provide copies of all textbooks (online and printed materials) to virtual students.

    • It is required that each online student provide their own webcam. Teachers must be able to see students in their class to mark them present. The school will provide a Chromebook and Hotspot if needed
