The week of May 15-19 will be utilized for the state Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA) and Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS). We will utilize a 2-hour early dismissal during this week with regular classes ending at 12:45pm MTTHF and 11:10am Wednesday. Lunch will be served after the last class of the day. Testing will occur after lunch.  Bus pickup will occur at normal time each day.

  • Students in grades 6,7,8, and 10 will complete the SBA assessments in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math each day.
    • The ELA Performance Test is scheduled over two days- Thursday and Friday.
    • If a student completes the ELA Performance Test on Thursday and they have completed all the other tests, they do not need to attend the Friday testing session.
  • Students in 11th grade will complete the WCAS on Monday and Tuesday only. They will have early dismissal on other days.
    • The WCAS is scheduled over two days- Monday and Tuesday.
