Thursday, February 12, 2015

Please find below the updated testing schedule for seventh and eighth grade students.

This schedule is for the state assessments aligned to the learning standards in the core content areas of English/Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. These new assessments have two parts:

Please note that these tests are given on multiple days, but the actual testing time per day is shorter than in the past with the OAAs. The testing window allowed by the state is short. It is important for your child to be in school on these days.
