Walker Report Card

 
The Florida Department of Education has updated the Walker Elementary Report Card on the Florida Department of Education eduData portal.  Even though we did not have FSA testing during the 2019-2020 school year, new information has been added (you will notice that the heading at the top reflects the 2018-2019 year due to no testing last year).  There are hard copies of the report available in the front office, in the parent resource center located in the media center, and in full at https://edudata.fldoe.org/ReportCards/Schools.html?school=0731&district=46.  Please contact Lauren McMillan or Kara Elmore if you have any questions about the information included in this report.
