Good morning DATA families, as you may have heard, the state has not waived mandatory testing for students. However, we have been given the option of using our NWEA MAP short cycle assessment in place of the state required test. This is the same test your students took in the fall so they will be familiar with the process and format. All students in grades 8-11 will be required to participate. Seniors who did not take the test earlier this semester must take the test to meet graduation requirements.
The testing date will be April 20th and regular classes will not be held that day. We will administer the math test from 9:00-11:00 and the ELA test from 12:00-2:00. Specific directions and procedures will be sent to families next week and also distributed to students. Our first round of testing in the fall went very well and anticipate the same for this round
Thank you for your understanding. We will submit our testing results to the state to meet the mandatory school wide testing requirement. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
