When and Where Will Testing Take Place?

Test dates are held on Saturdays.  Dates are assigned by school. Test locations and exact date(s) of testing are determined by the number of applications received. Parents will receive an email with test details approximately one month before their child’s scheduled test date (based on grade level). Please make every effort to have your child attend the date(s) assigned to him/her. If you have a conflict with the date(s) or your child is sick on the day of the testing or the night before, please email advancedlearning@bsd405.org with your child’s name, grade, the test location and date(s). If there are extenuating circumstances, we may be able to reschedule your child. Illness will not be considered a valid reason for appeal.
