Forward Testing

  • Testing Season Begins- Testing will begin next week for 5th grade, 3rd grade April 18-22 and 4th Grade April 18-22 and April 25-29; Make-ups May 2-6.

  • Remember- We are only allowed to test 50 students at a time to preserve bandwidth. Only those testing should be using the internet during those testing hours. Forward Schedule

  • Lisa will announce a reminder to shut down Internet each day and Mary will make an announcement when testing is completed for the day.

  • Keep in mind: We suggest we unplug iPads and other devices to prevent them from taking up bandwidth. You may use your computer and SMART board as long as it is not connected with blue cord or on WiFi.

  • Please remind students and visitors that we will be testing and to be quiet in the halls.

  • Thank you for your cooperation and flexibility.
