On June 29, 2023, the Florida Department of Education announced the Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (FAST) results. The 2022-2023 school year was the first year of statewide administration for these progress monitoring assessments, which provide teachers, students and families with actionable data at the beginning, middle and end of the school year to help guide and inform student achievement.
"The initial transition to a new assessment system is always a welcome opportunity to review data and develop new ways to provide tailored support and innovative educational experiences to our students," Superintendent Michael Maine said. "We have found great value in FAST and our ability to carefully monitor students' growth and make adjustments throughout the school year."
Spring 2023 FAST state highlights for the Martin County School District include*:
- Tying for 9th in the state for Civics
- Tying for 10th in the state for Grade 4 English Language Arts (ELA)
