A Note About End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments
Private school students are not required to take EOC assessments, however they may take them, if desired. Please read End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments for more information.
Public school students are required to pass EOC assessments in order to earn course credit and meet public high school graduation requirements. If your child may at some point enter or return to a public school, we highly recommend your child takes these tests.
Students who have not earned the required passing score on the Algebra 1 EOC Assessment may earn a comparative passing score on the respective section of the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) to meet public high school graduation requirements. (6A-1.094223)
