Last Week of State Testing!

We are in the last week of MSTEP and MI-Access Testing! Staff across the state should be ready for any last minute 1-off situations that may occur! We're getting closer to our 95%!

NWEA End June 1st

We have just over a week left of NWEA testing! We are close to 95% in all grade levels. We are hoping to have new data to share out with staff tomorrow. Keep up the hard work!!!

Retention Conferences

Retention conferences must be held for students that teachers are considering for retention. Tanya sent a power point to use during these conferences last week. Make sure you contact interventionist for input and ideas for an action plan for next year!

If you schedule a conference and a family is a no-show after multiple attempts. Record the meeting and send to the family.
