NWEA Testing Continues this Week!

This week all students in grades Kinder – Fifth will be assessed through our District-Wide Digital Platform. The assessments will help us measure achievement and growth in math, reading, language usage, and science. It provides teachers with accurate, actionable evidence to help inform instructional strategies regardless of how far students are above or below grade level.


Using MAP Growth as part of a comprehensive and balanced assessment plan, we can confidently tailor instruction to challenge every student. Students can individually see their progress and be inspired to take charge of their own learning.

We are excited to start Testing this week!
