NWEA - MAP Growth Testing Starts Tuesday

Most SHS students will take part in Map Growth testing on September 12, 13 & 14 in the areas of math, reading and language usage. Map Growth is a computer-adaptive test with questions becoming more or less challenging based on a student's answers. This type of assessment challenges top performers without overwhelming students whose skills are below grade level.

Map Growth testing will be completed three times each year - fall, winter and spring - to measure growth over time. In addition to measuring student growth over time, teachers will have access to their students' results right away in order to target instruction appropriately.

The MAP Growth tests include multiple choice, drag-and-drop, and other types of questions. To view and interact with a sample test, visit

Parents are encouraged to access the complete Parent Guide to MAP GROWTH

Warriors out in the Community

Coaching is not all about X's and O's on a white board. The football team visited Hampton Oaks Health Campus Thursday night for the residents' football themed dinner. "Being involved in the community and learning to treat our elders with respect is a pillar of the Scottsburg Football Program. It was an absolute blessing to watch our players and the residents interact."
