MAP Testing Updates

Students in grade 3-5 will begin their MAP testing the week of April 18th. 3rd and 4th graders will test during that first week only and 5th grade will continue their testing into the week of April 25-29.

Here is a copy of the detailed testing schedule. There will only need to be minor adjustments to specials schedules to accommodate testing times. MAP testing may also require our SPED/ELL teachers to make adjustment to their regular service schedules as well, so please be understanding of their role in supporting students with testing. Thank you in advance for your flexibility during this time.

During the week of April 18-22 the following teachers will switch their specials times:

Beard will switch with Burton

Cartwright will switch with Rust

Hagerman will switch with Helmick

Poland will switch with Johns

Needs Assessment Survey

Annually, the Professional Learning (PL) Advisory surveys SPS educators via the Annual Needs Assessment as a way to determine the professional learning needs within sites and across the district. This year, the current PL Advisory members chose to administer the Annual Needs Assessment Survey between April 11-15. The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes and is a data tool to drive site and district professional learning needs. The goal is that 100% of teachers would take the time to share their voice.

Please click HERE to complete the survey. This information was also provided to you in an email from Professional Learning on Friday, April 1.
