IOWA ASSESSMENT TESTING CONTINUES FOR GRADES 9, 10, 11
Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday have a 48 minute test schedule
It is important that students give their best effort on these assessments. Parents can help by seeing the students are well rested and have breakfast before coming to school on the test days.

Seniors won’t be testing so they do not have to be in the building during the test period. If seniors are in the building, they need to be either in the media center or cafeteria.
