Important WIDA Information

NES: JG Stratton

CMS: Patti Lindsey
CHS: Stephanie Bridgeman
The State of Oklahoma has set the WIDA ACCESS testing window for January 14th-March 22nd. Having a stricter time schedule in our district, with more test like procedures, will be beneficial to all. The following information will outline WIDA Access dates etc. for Clinton Public Schools:
Kinder: One on One testing, baseline score for future growth, begins January 14th
Grades 2-4: Southwest has the largest number of EL students to be tested, will begin the week of February 18th
Grade 1 & 5-12: Will begin the week of February 25th
ALL testing should end on March 8th
EL classes will not meet during the district WIDA testing dates
EL assistants will help in the testing room during the two week period.
Effective Spring 2018 (last Spring): WIDA scores will be added into the district accountability score according to growth. The baseline data was taken from 2017 WIDA scores. (15 out of 90 points, 17% of school report card)
This means EL students are essentially counted twice on the district accountability score: WIDA and OSTP.
Thank you for being flexible!
