Smarter Balanced Testing

Students in grades 3-5 will take the SBAC test in May. This test is very different from the CST test which was used to test students prior to the implementation of the Common Core curriculum. The new test is aligned with the Common Core curriculum and with the teaching that goes on in our classrooms. Principal Tripi and Dr. Stephanie Hasselbrink (5th grade teacher) recently presented information regarding the new testing in grades 3-5.
