Shark Bites

Informational bites to let you know what's going on!

Hello Smith Families,

We are kicking off our week for all learners (face to face & virtual) with our MAP screener. This screener is required for all students and will be given on Monday (math) and Tuesday (reading). For face to face learners, please make sure your Chromebook is fully charged each morning. Please let us know if you are experiencing issues with you Chromebook and we will put in a ticket for you! For virtual learners, please see the instructions below for MAP screening.

In addition, check out the added dates below for Future Ready Days in the district. Those are the days that students may wear jeans with a military or college shirt. Also, don't forget that Monday is a school holiday in observance of Labor Day. Have a great 3-day weekend!

Beginning of Year Assessment: MAP directions for Virtual Students

On Monday & Tuesday all Smith students (face to face & virtual) will complete MAP screening. (Monday- Math, Tuesday- Reading)

District Recommended NWEA-MAP Protocol:

  • Teacher will communicate date and time for MAP testing (please check your email on the morning of each assessment to get the web address, test session ID & passcode)
  • Students will “attend” test session based on teacher direction (teacher will tell you in an email what time to log your student in to begin testing)
  • Teachers will monitor students using Dyknow(web browser activity)
  • Teachers will have make-up sessions and will communicate with parents/guardians regarding students who did not “attend” the testing session to schedule them in a specific make-up session
  • Please reach out to your virtual homeroom teacher for questions

Add these to your calendar...

In addition to our campus jean days with spirit shirts, FISD has added Future Ready Days where students can wear jeans with a college or military shirt to show that they are future ready! Please see those added dates below.
