SBAC Make-Up Testing

A few notes regarding Make-Up Testing this week...

1. If your room is empty for any period of time, it may be taken for testing.

2. If you have students who have not completed testing, we will take them out at any point this week ... sorry we can't be super responsive to scheduling. It just needs to get done.

3. SpEd will take care of completing testing for kids with special accommodations/supports.

It's really important that we get all of our students tested AND completed as participation rates play a role in the school's accountability reporting.

Thank you!

Data Talks Cancelled

We should resume official check-in's/data talks next week after all testing has been completed.
