Spring Assessments - UPDATED 4/30/18

April 16, 2018

 

Dear Parent/Guardian:

This spring, your 10th grade child will take the Smarter Balanced tests in math and/or English language arts. These test results are used for state and federal accountability, as well as for assessment graduation requirements. Your 11th grade child will take the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS) for federal accountability.

This is the fourth year our state will administer the Smarter Balanced tests and the first year for the WCAS. The results from the Smarter Balanced tests will provide a more accurate picture of whether students across the state are on track to be ready for career or college.

Knowing your child’s achievement level (1 through 4) will help him or her choose which courses to take next year to help prepare for career and college success. We will work with your child to make sure his or her course choices fit their goals for life. Our school will have access to the Smarter Balanced test scores a few weeks after students complete the online tests, but the WCAS results will not be available until August.

Our school is scheduled to take the tests May 9-10 (ELA), May 24 (Science), & May 30-31 (Math).

Please email me at jlowe@centralia.wednet.edu if you have questions about state testing.

Thank you for continuing to work with us to make sure your child successful. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to better support your child. We want your child to leave us with a solid foundation of skills and a future full of opportunities.

Sincerely,

 

Josue Lowe

Principal, Centralia High School
