MAP Testing

The Spring MAP testing will start tomorrow. You should have received your child's information from the classroom teacher. Each student has a growth goal they will be working towards. As a parent, you can remind your child to show their best effort and take their time. The information will be sent to you once the MAP window closes. Our goal is for every student to show a year's growth.

We will continue MAP growth assessments. We have seen great results so far. Students have been excited about their progress.
