WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - FCAT testing will begin Monday at schools across Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.

The FCAT determines whether students advance to the next grade and factors in the grades the schools receive from the state.

Some parents are upset because Tuesday night's Passover Seder will keep kids up late before the FCAT tests.

Palm Beach County schools are not rescheduling the tests like Broward County, but the district says principals will schedule make up tests for students who have religious conflicts. That decision isn't pleasing all parents because they say their children will have to miss class because of the rescheduling

In preparation for the tests, parents should make sure their children are getting plenty of sleep and a good breakfast before they come to school.

This is the last year for the FCAT. The State Board of Education voted in 2010 to come up with a new test that hasn't been finalized yet.
