Congratulations St. Johns County, Florida!

Greetings Blogosphere!

Yesterday, a success story found its way to my inbox so I thought I’d share the good news!¬† St. Johns County School District in sunny Florida used Discovery Education Assessment: Predictive Benchmark for the first time this year in grades 2-5 in reading/language arts and math, and grades 3-5 in science.

    I actually live in St. Johns County Florida! Although I do not work in that county any more – I work in Putnam County next door and we also use DE Assessment and think it is awesome!
