Please Complete the Assessment Training Modules

With testing quickly approaching, please remember to go to the following website and complete the training modules. Print the certificate at the end of each quiz and provide a copy of each to Margie Longoria.

These modules along with the video scenarios included therein provide excellent examples of active monitoring, test security, and proper handling of test materials. By completing these modules, we should be able to minimize, if not eliminate, testing irregularities.

The website is: http://texasassessment.com/

The link to each module is found on the right side of the screen under "Test Administrator Training Modules."

5 Saturday Schools Remaining

The last 5 Saturday Schools will be held at Alice High School on April 2, April 16, May 7. May 14, and May 21.

If you would like to sign up to teach any or all of these dates, please contact Margie Longoria. We been averaging about 35 students in attendance, but we expect our attendance on these dates to be higher. Your help is very much appreciated as we work to help our students advance to 8th or 9th grade.

Attendance Update:

We had two days where either the 7th graders or the 8th graders met their 95% attendance goal, and a couple of days where they almost met their goal, hitting 94%. Not unexpectedly, the Friday before Spring Break was a very bad attendance day where neither grade level broke 90%.

This is a short week with no school on Friday so anything you can do to encourage students to be in attendance is much appreciated.

Check out the site below for great ideas for vocabulary and foldables. Special thanks to Michelle Ballard for sharing this site.
