Not only is this an opportunity for students to demonstrate their understanding of grade-level content, but the data also helps us to improve our instruction and plan for intervention. Please ensure that your child is present on testing days (see below) and avoid scheduling appointments during the testing block (8:30-10:10am). Thank you!

April 17th-April 18th - Science Testing for 5th Only

April 23rd-April 25th - ELA Testing for 3rd-5th

April 30th-May 2nd - Math Testing for 3rd-5th

iReady testing will follow CAASPP testing - May 13th for math and May 15th for reading.

If your child plans to visit the Bookmobile after school on Thursday AND you are picking them up by car, please plan ahead and make sure to park your car so as not to hold up the pick-up line.
