NWEA MAP Testing

This week, students in Kinder-5th grade will be taking the NWEA MAP Growth Assessement. The assessment provides educators information to support students in the classroom. Each student's goal is to show growth from the beginning of the year. Ask your child how they are going to work to show growth on the MAP assessment. Shortly after the testing window closes, the MAP Parent Report will be emailed to parents.
