Beginning Thursday, December 15th, 3rd-8th grade students will take ACP exams. For 3rd-5th grades, ACP exams count for 5% of the student’s final semester grade, and for 6th-8th, they are worth 10% of the student’s final semester grade.
These are timed tests (2 hours each), so please make sure your child is at school before 8:30 as all testing will begin immediately after announcements. It is important that students get plenty of rest and bring a snack to eat between tests. Students may not take exams early. They must take the test during the scheduled window. Students with an unexcused absence will receive a score of 0 for their final exam which could impact their semester grade. Students with an excused absence will be able to make-up the exam in January (exact dates TBD). We encourage students to bring lunch.
