Kindergarten Readiness Scores

In past years, the Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener (FLKRS) was the screening tool utilized for this purpose. However, in 2022-2023, Florida adopted a statewide Coordinated Screening and Progress Monitoring System known as the Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (FAST) Star Early Literacy. FAST Star Early Literacy now serves as the kindergarten screener.
