SBAC and NGSS Testing Schedule for In-Person Learners

Please see below for the testing calendar for in-person learning. As we approach the state testing window, we ask for your help in the following ways:

1. Please make sure that your child's iPad is fully charged before coming to school in the morning. They will need their iPads to complete testing.

2. Please help your child in understanding these tests allow us to see where they are academically. While we want them to try their best, we also do not want to cause them undue stress or anxiety.

3. Please help them to get a good night of sleep before their test!
