SBAC Review Classes

Greetings Students!

It is time to start getting your brains ready for the end of the year state tests, the SBACs! In order to help you prepare, we are beginning special SBAC prep Class Connect classes this week. There will be several sessions to choose from each week, so you can choose the time that works best for you. You only need to attend ONE session per week.

This week we will be focusing on how to use the special online tools that you will need when you take the SBAC. We will not be reviewing the actual content of the test, just the tools. Think of it like learning how to play a new video game. We will be teaching you how to turn on your controller and move all of your players, rather than how to beat the game itself.

In addition to attending these live Class Connect sessions, you will want to view the following short video tutorials. These tutorials will also help you navigate the tools on the SBAC and you can refer back to them as we get closer to the test.

Attendance: Our attendance is based on making progress in all courses each week. Not completing lessons in all courses can result in being marked absent for the entire week.

Current Progress should be between 87% in most subjects on Friday.

Please make sure you are completing all lessons in your daily plan. I suggest printing your plan off Every Monday morning. On Friday, double check the plan you printed, any lessons you didn’t complete need to be done before Monday. If you would like to know if you are behind in progress please send me a k-mail. I would be happy to send you a progress snapshot! Not sure how many lessons to do a week? See below! :-)
