Mid-Year Scantron Testing
Mid-year scantron testing begins next week for K-8th grade. This computer-based, adaptive assessment will measure a snapshot of how students are doing in both math and reading. Results will be shared with the next report card. If at any time you have questions about your student's progress in any class, please set up a conference with that teacher.
