State Testing for Students This Week

Posted: March 31, 2014 at 12:01 pm

This week local students will be taking the State Standards tests. Superintendent Dr. Steve Atwater said the tests are important for both students and their schools…


Dr. Atwater: “Once a year the students in grades 3 through 10 are tested by the State, so important that all of our students have a successful testing week by making sure they have a good breakfast, good night’s sleep and getting to school on time. So it would be really great if parents didn’t make any appointments for their children Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week.”


The SBAs test student proficiency in reading, writing, math, and science. To find practice tests, click here.


Principals have asked that if students wake up too sick to come to school, please call and let the front office know as early as possible.

    Standardized testing isn’t the best way to educate our children.

    Teaching to the test imposes artificial arbitrary limits on educational opportunities.
