Per state security testing regulations, students are not allowed to have access to cell phones, tablets, laptops, or any other electronic devices during testing.
During the math test, students have access to an online or hand held calculator. Students may use their own calculators, but these must be cleared by your child’s math teacher. All calculators are cleared before and after testing by the teacher per the state security testing procedures.
All students in grades 3-8 must complete state testing. Students need to be present for testing each day. Please avoid scheduling appointments and requesting early dismissals during these times.
