Winter MAP Testing with Coverage

We will conduct MAP testing similar to when we tested in the fall with testing occurring over a block of 2 periods. We will test on the following dates:



  • Tuesday, January 15th 1st and 2nd period: Reading MAP test
  • Thursday, January 17th 6th and 7th period: Math MAP test



Any teacher with a 1st and/or 6th period will begin testing with the students that are assigned to you for that period.


January 15th:

- Mrs. Crandall will start testing 1st hour and Mrs. Dittmar will cover 2nd hour

- Mr. Snyder will start his PE class testing in the cafeteria. Mrs. Krug will cover during 2nd period.

Evaluation/SLO Reminders

  • Don't wait till the last minute to start your SLO's! Don't forget everyone must complete 2 SLO's each school year and can run a maximum of 4 per year. If you are being evaluated, they must be completed by February 1st.
  • Artifacts for teachers being evaluated are only needed for domains 1 and 4. These must also be submitted to me by February 1st.
  • The sooner SLO's are completed and artifacts are turned in, the sooner we can complete your Summative Evaluation together. Thanks for your cooperation!
