Gov. Scott Will Congratulate Students with High FCAT Scores
Students who receive a 3 or higher on their FCAT will be receiving congratulatory notes from Gov. Rick Scott in addition to their score reports. The notes will go out to any student who receives a 3 or higher on any section of the FCAT 2.0. Students who earned a 3.5 or higher on the FCAT 2.0 writing section will also receive a congratulatory letter from the governor, according to the Florida Department of Education.
The letter will read:
"As Governor, I want to commend you for your excellent work on the statewide assessment. Your efforts and the outstanding work of your teachers have led to your on-grade-level performance on this important assessment. I am proud of your hard work this year, and I know your teachers and family are proud of you as well. I encourage you to keep up the good work. Doing well in school is the first step to success in life, and your progress this school year indicates that you are gaining the skills you need to pursue the education and career of your dreams."
Students who achieve perfect scores on their FCAT exam will also receive a certificate of achievement signed by Gov. Scott.
It is important to recognize student achievement and Governor Scott wants them to know he appreciates their hard work, wrote state Education Department press secretary Cheryl Etters. His personal congratulations recognize the students academic performance and encourages them to keep doing well in school.
Education has been a huge priority for Gov. Scott, who strongly advocated for teacher pay raises during this year's legislative session. He will be running for re-election in 2014.
