State Testing Window Opens Monday, April 15th

You are an important part of your child’s education. To help your child get ready for the test, you can:

  • Talk about the test with your child. Make sure they are not scared or anxious.
  • Tell your child that you and their teacher have high expectations and are both there to help, every step of the way.
  • Take a practice test with your child. 
  • Make sure your child is at school, on time, every day. 
  • Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing.

You will receive your child’s results at or before the beginning of the next school year. The results will identify where your child is doing well or needs more help, so you can better support their learning at home and teachers can better support their learning in the classroom.
