Spring 2020 REQUIRED State testing:

Students attending any public charter school in the state of Arizona are required to participate in Arizona state testing. All students in grades 3rd-8th AND 10th grade students enrolled at Arizona Virtual Academy (AZVA) and Insight Academy of Arizona (ISAZ) are required to participate in this testing over a 3-4 day period of time. Review below to see what is new in state testing, what your family needs to expect, and the testing dates.

Also, PLEASE consider volunteering at your child's testing site. Volunteers are needed to help with student check-in and check-out, and hallway supervision. It is a GREAT WAY to contribute to your school community. Additional information is coming soon!
