Welcome back to our remote students as they come to school for testing, and to those who have decided to return to face-to-face learning!

ACAP STATE TESTING

ACAP SUMMATIVES TESTING CONTINUES!


SUMMATIVE DATES: MARCH 15 - APRIL 30 (Spring break is April 5-9, so that week is out. However we should be done by spring break.)


-Remote and virtual students are also required to test! Due to the high security of the assessment, all students will be required to test on campus.


-All testing homeroom teachers have provided parents with information on when their child is to test. Please make sure your child/ren are on time to test. We cannot allow students to enter a classroom where testing has begun. All remote students should be on campus at least 30 minutes before their testing times.


-The State Department of Education requires that we reach a 95% student attendance rate for state testing. Therefore we need every student to test!


You can access the testing schedule from the link below.
