Spring Assessments at a Glance!
** IMPORTANT ** The schedule listed below is tentative until CDE releases the official assessment window for the 2019-2020 CMAS assessments, but based on past experience we believe that the schedule below will be accurate.
We encourage parents to make every effort to have students at school and on time on assessment days. Please instill in your children the importance of putting forth their best effort so that we may gather data that accurately represents their ability. Where possible, please avoid scheduling appointments or early releases on assessment days as students that miss any portion of an assessment will need to complete missed material during regular instruction time.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL PARENTS THAT HAVE REFUSED TESTING
For parents that have exercised their legal right to refuse state standardized assessments for their children in grades 3 through 8, please reference the CMAS/PARCC Assessment Schedule above. To help us facilitate completion of standardized assessments as efficiently as possible, we ask that parents refusing state standardized assessments allow their non-testing children to remain home from school for the entirety of their grade level’s scheduled assessment days with the exception of 7th grade on Wednesday, 4/8/20 (this request does not apply to scheduled makeup days).
