Working together with families in a partnership of teachers, staff and community members to provide an individualized learning environment that fosters high achievement in core and elective areas; preparing students for life-long success.



Measures of Academic Progress

A big THANK YOU to everyone who took the assessment this week.

There are two days scheduled for make up tests. We know that this is a busy time of the year and we appreciate all your efforts to get your students to the office. Participating in the MAP Assessment provides valuable information that you can use to tailor your instruction. Additionally, participation in all 3 screeners (fall, winter, and spring) will trigger a release of the 50/50 (core/elective) spending limits.

If your students haven't already already completed both the math and reading assessments, be sure to contact your sponsor teacher to schedule a time to come in next week Monday or Tuesday.

For optimal results, it is highly recommended that students take the math and English/language arts portions of the test on separate days. Taking each section on separate days reduces both mental and physical fatigue.

Please make sure that your students are well rested and encourage them to try their best. We will have some healthy snack choices available in case they get hungry.
