As we continue our preparations for the new online testing, I would like to make you aware of some key facts. The testing windows are determined by the State and they have designated our window to be March 9th to April 3rd. While this appears to be a lengthy period of time, our spring break falls in this window, as well as Good Friday and a SIP day. Therefore, our true testing time is cut from twenty days to fourteen.
Your student will take a battery of five tests; three ELA tests and two math tests. These tests range in time from sixty minutes to ninety minutes and we are doing our best to schedule one test per day for the students. Eighth graders will, for the most part, test during the first week, March 9th – 13th. Seventh graders will test during the second week, March 16th to March 20th. Please note; this is the week before spring break and the Friday is a half day. We will be testing that morning. Sixth graders will test, for the most part, the week we return from spring break, March 30th to April 2nd. Please note; this is a four day week due to Good Friday.
We are limited to the number of students we can test at one time this year because all students will be tested on computers. We are running three labs each day. While we do not want students who are ill to attend school, we do ask that you try to have your students here and on time during the testing weeks. There is very little time for make ups this year. If you already have a trip planned, or appointments you can’t reschedule, please notify the office as soon as possible.
Thank you in advance for your support,
Tracy Beam, Principal MCMS
