Department of Education Warns Parents of Imposter FCAT Parent Network Web Site

Department of Education Warns Parents of Imposter FCAT Parent Network Web Site
The Florida Department of Education recently alerted parents and school districts to the existence of at least one imposter Web site designed to appear as if it were the Department’s official FCAT Parent Network, an online resource enabling parents to view their student’s Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores. Known as imposter domains, these Web sites attempt to capitalize on Web address misspellings for commercial purposes. Imposter domains typically use slight variations of official Web site addresses to redirect unsuspecting visitors to sites with advertisements and paid links. To access student FCAT results, parents should log on to www.fcatparentnetwork.com using the login and password provided by their school. This secure site also includes detailed information on the meaning of the scores and provides resources to improve student performance in the future.
