Testing Information

WELCOME TO THE SWMS TESTING INFORMATION PAGE!

There are a lot of moving parts to state and district testing this year, but we hope this page will make it easy to know when and where your student will be testing.  Per the Florida Department of Education and Gov. DeSantis, all Florida students must complete the following test administrations on campus, in person.  For more information on state testing policies, please visit the FLDOE testing website.  For more information on district testing policies, please visit the OCPS testing website.  Please check this website often for Southwest Middle School testing updates and announcements.

Our school will follow the COVID-19 Health and Safety Procedures during testing. As a reminder, students should stay home if sick, someone in the home is sick, or if he/she has recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19.

Please read the following testing information carefully, paying close attention to testing days and times for our face-to-face (F2F) students versus our LaunchED (LE) students.  

Important Information for LaunchED Families:
- LaunchED students must wear a face mask while on campus for testing.
- LaunchED students will test separately from Face-to-Face students.
- LaunchED students should be dropped off on campus 30 minutes before the testing time in the front of the school at the GYM LOBBY entrance using the car rider line.
- LaunchED students should be picked up after testing at the appointed pick up time on the side of the school in the BUS LOOP.  This will allow us to limit student interactions between those arriving for testing and those leaving campus from testing.
