Required Assessments in Star360

All students in 9th-12th grades will take Star360 assessments this year for math and reading. These will be taken in August, December, and May. Additionally, all students will be taking a USA Test Prep assessment in October and March to ensure students are meeting their grade level standards and to simulate state testing. These assessments are required and help our teachers target instruction to meet students’ needs and ensure growth. It is important that students complete these assessments on their own, without assistance from learning coaches or other sources.


Your teachers will also send out information to complete Star360 assessments, but students may begin now to complete them. The deadline for taking the Star360 assessment was August 14. If you have not completed this assessment yet, it is extremely overdue!
