Important Fall Assessment Update

Dear Students and Families

The following message contains important information regarding our Fall assessments which start next Monday, October 5th. All students K-8 will be taking the FastBridge Assessment in Reading and in Math. Identified students in grades 9-12 are also expected to take the assessment. If you are a student and or family with a student in grades 9-12 and you are receiving this message, you have been identified to take these two assessments. The great news is that students can take the assessments at home! The data will help determine what additional needs to be addressed through interventions and or enrichments. So, we ask students to do their best.

Grade 2-12: aReading and aMath Testing Sessions (Only Pick ONE Session)

Parents and students only need to pick one session starting next week to take the math and reading assessment. Students have the opportunity to select 1 session from 12 testing sessions. We are hopeful that by offering many testing sessions will accommodate family schedules.


Each session will start with a Google Meet. The goal of the Google Meet is to give parents and students the instructions on how to start and take the assessment. Support staff will be available by phone during the assessment to troubleshoot any issues that may occur at home. It is important that a parent and or adult are present during the assessment to help ask questions and help their child start the assessment.
