News to know...

  • Current MAP Realities:

Our current assessment calendar lists the window as April 18 – May 13. [Note: The state window is from April 4 – May 27]. As a district we can select to test within the state’s window. We have typically tried to keep the window about 3 weeks to minimize the need to test students who transfer into our district at the end of the school year.

In order to accommodate the request to test later, we will move the district window back one week to April 25 – May 20. Our goal will be to have all testing completed by May 13, with the last week for emergency contingencies.

One additional note, we are hearing from DESE that there will be field test items embedded in the test. This will mean that there will be more items than what will be scored for the student. It will not be clear or obvious which items are field test and which are “live”. As a result the test may be a bit longer than what we experienced last year.

  • Teams, please make sure you put your collaboration day agendas in the share folder for Collab Days. I will need copies of these and your notes for Title purposes. Just type on your agendas on your meeting day and save them as meeting minutes in that folder. Thanks!
