Tests and assessments . . . students have been taking them in American schools for generations. Exams are part of our school culture; we test students to see what they know, where they need to improve, and if our instructional practices are reaching the students.

End of the 2014-15 School Year
Planning for the 2015-16 School Year
Parents/Guardians of current 5th and 7th graders, and their child, are encouraged to attend one of the upcoming Parent Information Sessions about the district’s 1:1 iPad Initiative. In approximately an hour, we will cover the equipment your child will receive this fall, the use of the iPads, the Technology Protection Plan, the Apple ID set up process as well as give parents time to ask questions and get some immediate answers from the presenters. Please be sure to have your guardian email address up-to-date in Home Access Center before attending the Help Session. The presentation will be the same at all three buildings so you only need to attend one of them. Parents/Guardians of current 6th graders who have not attended one of these informational sessions this past year are also encouraged to attend.
