COOLIDGE PTA BOARD NOMINATION FORM


3rd & 4th Grade Students - MSTEP PLANNING

Spring has sprung and there is lots to plan for from now through the end of the year. Next up on our agenda is planning for MSTEP, the Michigan Department of Education’s annual state testing. Face to Face students will be bringing home an informational letter sharing our District's plan for elementary testing. LV teachers will share this letter with families. These assessments will begin in mid April. Our testing schedules for our students are below.


3rd & 4th Grade Face to Face Students


  • 4/27 - 4/29 M-STEP ELA Testing
  • 5/3-5/7 M-STEP ELA Testing/ Math Testing Begins
  • 5/10-5/14 Finish Math Testing/ Make Ups




3rd & 4th Grade LV Students


  • 5/17 - 5/21 M-STEP ELA
  • 5/24-5/28 M-STEP Math

A Google Survey will be sent out to our LV families. We will be administering the test in two sessions per day. Parents will have a choice on when they would like their child to test.


The two sessions that parents can choose from are

9:30a-10:45a or 1:30p-2:45p




This year there is no option to take the assessment remotely so all LV students will be asked to come into Coolidge for testing. If your student is going to participate in this testing, know that all mitigation measures must be followed. These measures include completing our daily screener before coming to Coolidge and wearing a mask. LV students will be testing in their teacher's classroom to allow proper distancing. LV parents must provide transportation to and from testing. Details for drop off times and materials that LV students should bring with them will be shared with families at a later time.


As we plan for this testing, we recognize that not everyone will feel comfortable with testing in person and we are available to answer any questions you may have. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your student’s teacher or myself.
