SC Ready and SC Pass Information

Hello Shark Parents/Guardians,

Attached are brochures with information regarding the upcoming SC Ready and SC PASS standardized state assessments. Below are the dates for testing here at SJIS.

- June 2nd- SC Ready WRITING for 5th and 6th grade students

- June 3rd- SC Ready READING for 5th and 6th grade students

- June 8th - SC Ready MATH for 5th and 6th grade students

- June 10th- SC PASS SCIENCE for 6th grade students ONLY

During these two weeks of testing, it is important that students are present and on time for school. It would be beneficial for students to get a good night’s rest and eat a healthy breakfast each morning. Students will be required to turn off all electronic devices and store them in a designated container that will be monitored by teachers in each room.

HCVS students and parents- additional information regarding spring testing as it relates to our virtual students, will be shared as soon as it is made available.

Thank you for your support!
