The Florida Department of Education has launched the Just Take 20 literacy campaign to encourage families to set aside 20 minutes a day for reading. The campaign is available for free to all Florida families and K-12 public schools.
The centerpiece of the campaign is an interactive website that prompts families to practice reading at home, using a customizable literacy plan tailored to their child's grade level and needs.
- Please visit http://justtake20.org to create a FREE account through the "Sign Up Now!" link. This will allow you to create a family literacy plan where you will have access to reading and writing resources and activities that can be used at home or on the go. There are also resources for struggling readers and English Language Learners. Each family can build its own family profile, score points and earn badges, while having fun with various reading and writing activities.

District BSA Testing
BSA- The Broward County BSA is designed to mirror the Florida Standards appropriate to each grade level. As such, results from the assessment should be used as one component to guide instructional decision-making. Designated questions are also used as predictors of proficiency on the Florida Standard Assessment (FSA).
Florida Standards Assessment FSA
Florida Standards Assessment- The Florida Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts were approved by the Florida State Board of Education in February 2014 and are fully implemented in grades K-12. All Florida schools will teach the Florida Standards and the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) has contracted with the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to develop and administer new statewide assessments. These assessments will provide parents, teachers, policy makers and the general public with information regarding how well students are learning the Florida standards.
