FAST Parent Meeting Presentation and Materials

  • BCPS has adopted a new medium for standardized testing and instructional accountability called FAST, Florida Assessment of Student Thinking. All students will now be assessed through three (3) Progress Monitoring (PM) windows throughout the school year: Fall, Winter, and Spring. 

    We conducted a FAST Parent Information Meeting/Q&A on September 7th, 2022. We discussed STAR Renaissance, which refers to our Primary grades, Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd, and  TIDE Cambium, which refers to our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. 

    During this meeting, we introduced these new assessment programs, discussed learning initiatives and data interpretation, provided parent resource information, and offered a Q&A opportunity for K-5 parents.
