CoGAT Testing

  • Beginning tomorrow through Wednesday (makeups on Thursday).
  • Please be aware of testing locations in B Hall, C Hall, and upstairs.

The message being communicated to parents is that this is "universal screening" rather than CoGAT testing... In words, there's nothing to study for! :)
