SRI testing begins this week!
The test for all students will be administered by the ELA department. The schedule for testing is below. If you know or have students that are only here for part of the day, please remind them to schedule a time to take the SRI this week.
Student scores by grade level will be sent to everyone at the conclusion of the testing period and makeups. You will also receive a spreadsheet to document student scores for your Intervention period, which will be explained during this week's Faculty meeting.
(The schedule is also posted on the Dates to Know page for future reference.)
