Assistant Superintendent of Student Learning and Program's Message

Dr. Denita Scott

Dear Parents/Guardians: In January of 2017 students in grades 2-8 were administered the Terra Nova post assessment and we have yet to receive the assessment results for this time period. The root cause of the problem was the merger of CTB/McGraw-Hill  (Terra Nova) and Data Recognition Corporation as one entity that caused delays. As of today, we were told that results will be available before the end of the school year. Due to this confusion, the district will no longer use Terra Nova and will move to the Northwest Evaluation Association/Measures of Academic Progress (NWEA-MAP) assessment for the upcoming school year. Students will be tested three times a year and results become available within 24 hours. More information can be found at https://www.nwea.org . . . .
