Testing Update

Chester High finished the first week of MAP Benchmark Testing this week. Students were tested in ELA/Reading. This week students will be testing in Math. We are excited to see how much out students have grown since the first round of testing back in the fall. Our goal is to push out students to improve and make strides in their academic journey. The High School Team is anxiously awaiting completion of the testing to be able to dig into the data and use it as another tool to guide instruction and push our students to achieve their educational goals.

These devices are considered weapons as they can cause bodily harm.
