(5/8/2019) - May 21 and 22 MCAS Testing


Dear Parents and Guardians:
On May 21 and 22, students in grades 7, 8, and 10 will be taking the Mathematics MCAS test. In order to staff the large number of testing sites and provide the necessary accommodations to all students who are taking the test throughout the day, our school will follow a hybrid MCAS testing/E-learning schedule for both testing days.
The schedule is as follows:
Students in grades 7, 8, and 10 will report at regular time for testing on May 21 and 22 and remain at school for the entire day.
When testing "ends" at 10:40 a.m., students who are done with testing will report to their respective classes. Although scheduled testing "ends" at 10:40 a.m., students can continue testing for the remainder of the school day if they require additional time.
Students in grades 9, 11, and 12, will actually stay home and have an E-learning day from 10:40 a.m. until 2:05 p.m.
The reason for implementing a hybrid MCAS testing/E-learning schedule is to ensure that we can provide sufficient staffing and testing support beyond 10:40 a.m. given the large number of students who will be testing. We also recognize that every day of instruction is important and therefore students who are not on campus that day will continue with their education utilizing the E-learning platform that we have established over the past few years.
Thank you for your understanding.
