MAP ASSESSMENTS START MONDAY
The fall universal screener assessments will take place Monday, September 12, 2016 to Friday, September 23, 2016 for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.
For optimal results, it is highly recommended that students take the math and English/language arts portions of the test on separate days. Taking each section on separate days reduces both mental and physical fatigue.
Please make sure that your students are well rested and encourage them to try their best. We will have some healthy snack choices available in case they get hungry.
