First FCAT Testing Finished

Students across the Sunshine State are breathing a sigh of relief as the first round of FCAT testing comes to an end. The first week of FCAT testing is now in the books, and local school leaders say things went off without a hitch.

All is quiet at the Leon Lion’s den while the first wave of FCAT testing reaches its crest, and so far, so good say administrators.

"Certainly hoping keep A, this has been one of the smoothes administrations of the test I have ever seen in my life," says Principal, Margo Hall

Thanks in part to testing coordinators like Mahaska Whitley, who says test stress trickles down to administrators as well.

"After this I'm going to be as excited as the kids that it's only one more week until spring break," says Whitley.

For now, it's back to the books until the next phase of testing begins. Across the district, school leaders report few problems, no missing materials and only a handful of tardy test takers.

Overall, students say it's been smooth sailing.

"Said felt prepared hope comfortable and did best and we'll come out an A school once again," adds Margo Hall.
