In addition, the state released results for End of Course (EOC) exams in Algebra I, Geometry, Biology, U.S. History and Civics.

The 2019 results show Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) either maintained or increased the percentage of students scoring level 3 or higher on 15 of the 21 tested areas (subjects and grade levels) as compared to the prior year.

  • Additionally, these results show that the percentage of BCPS students scoring at or above achievement level 3 met or exceed the state average in 15 out of the 21 tested areas.

  • Among the five largest school districts in Florida, BCPS earned the highest percentage or tied for the highest percentage of students scoring at level 3 or higher on the ELA portion of the FSA in grades 3 
    and 9.

“We continue to show academic improvements across many grade levels.  This is due to the dedication of our incredible teachers, administrators and staff, and the hard work of our students,” said Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “Our strategic focus on early learning and literacy is creating strong educational foundations for our students. We will analyze where the gains were made as we prepare for the upcoming school year.”

On Wednesday, July 3, 2019, parents/guardians will be able to access their child/children’s test scores on the District’s Virtual Counselor portal at http://bcps.browardschools.com/VirtualCounselor/.
