End-of-year Assessments

As mentioned in last week’s SHS Spotlight, we have been working on a plan to assess our students at the end of this very strange school year. Governor Whitmer’s executive order 2020-35, which closed all Michigan schools for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, stated students who were on track to promote to the next grade as of the school closure will do so. This remains unchanged; the assessments are to help us identify any gaps in learning that may have occurred in the last quarter of 2019-2020 and, if so, prepare to address them in the 2020-2021 school year. These assessments will not affect students’ report card grades.


End-of-year assessments for all grades will be administered during the week of June 1-5. We are creating a schedule that will allow for online assessments where possible and social distancing for those assessments that need to be given in the school building. We will have this schedule to all families by the end of the day on Tuesday, May 26.


Thank you for all you have done and are doing as we work to support one another in educating our students, your children. May God bless you.
