ISTEP + Testing

  April 17th - April 28th 

NWEA Testing 

May 8th - May 19th 

Testing Tips:

1. Be sure your children are present every day and all day for ISTEP testing.

2. It is important for students to be well rested during testing. Please have your child to bed early during ISTEP testing so they can achieve their optimal performance level.

3. Students need a good dinner the night before and a good breakfast for the added thinking power and energy required to take the test. Make sure they eat before they leave for school in the morning.

4. Encourage your child to do their best. Let them know you will be proud of them whatever they score… as long as they try to do their very best!
