Student Progression Plan
The School Board of each Florida district is required by state law to establish a comprehensive program for student progression based on an evaluation of each student’s performance, including an assessment of how well the student masters the performance standards approved by the State Board. The student progression plan in Hillsborough County Public Schools (HCPS) is based on mastery of the English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies standards. Learn more here.

A student progression plan provides families with academic information at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.
