Establishing paternity for children benefits the whole family. It establishes legal documentation of the child’s natural parents, helps with ensuring support from both parents, provides an opportunity for the child to have the father's last name, and improves financial security. The easiest way to establish paternity is for the mother and natural father to voluntarily complete, sign, and have witnessed, a form that acknowledges paternity. An Acknowledgment of Paternity has the same legal effect as an order of paternity entered in a court or administrative proceeding. See Section 70 of Title 10 of the Oklahoma Statutes (Link opens in new window).

Beginning in 2014-15, assessments aligned to the Florida Standards replaced assessments aligned to the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in mathematics and English language arts (formerly reading and writing). The NGSSS Algebra 1 and Geometry assessments were replaced by Florida Standards Assessments (FSA) in these subjects. The NGSSS Algebra 1 Retake EOC will be administered through Summer 2017 for the cohort of students who initially took the NGSSS course and have yet to pass the EOC assessment. All students completing applicable Algebra 1 or Geometry courses in 2014-15 and beyond will take the FSA End-of-Course Assessment.
