HOLIDAY, Fla. (AP) - More than 200 students at Anclote High School in Holiday will have to retake their Algebra 1 Florida Standards Test exam because the school supplied the wrong type of calculator.

Multiple news outlets report school staff handed out scientific calculators earlier this month, which are not approved by the Florida State Department of Education. The mix-up actually affected more than 800 Anclote High students, but only the Algebra 1 class has to take the exam again.

Students will have to retake the exam as a graduation requirement. They have until the end of their senior year to pass the exam for graduation purposes.

The problem won’t affect seniors’ graduation in two weeks.

Scientific calculators contain more than the four functions allowed for taking these exams.
