QUARTERLY CHECKPOINTS 4-12
Quarterly District Checkpoints will assess student mastery of the power standards and other related standards for the Quarter and may contain content from multiple units of study (depending on the scope and sequence for your course). This data will be used to track student progress towards mastery of grade appropriate standards.
PROOF THE CHECKPOINTS & PICK A DATE!
District Quarterly Checkpoint Windows for Social Studies
