Dear SDSCPA Parents/Guardians,

We will administer the Smart Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) tests (grades 6-8, 11 &12) in the areas of mathematics, language arts & science beginning next week on Monday, the 7th of May. If you would like more information on the Smarter Balanced test, please visit the Smarter Balanced website.

Our testing schedule is as follows:

• May 7-11 & May 14-16, Grades 6-8 ELA

• May 22-25, Grade 11, Math

• May 29 - June 1, Grade 8 NGSS/Science

• May 29 - June 1, Grades 6-8 Math

• May 29 - June 1, Grade 11 ELA

• TBD, Grade 12 NGSS/Science Pilot Test

Please be sure your student attends school regularly. Remember, tests do reflect a student's overall achievement. The more effort and energy a student puts into learning, the more likely he/she will do well on tests. Make sure that your student is well rested on school days and especially the day of a test. Lastly, encourage your student to do their best! If you have any questions or concerns about testing, please reach out to me. My contact information is above in the header.
