Principal's Message

March 7, 2019

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

Our students take federally required assessments every spring.  These assessments help us understand how our students are growing academically, compared to their peers across state.  The state uses this information to provide more support and resources to the schools in the greatest need.  This year, the English language arts and math assessment for grades 3-6 is called the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR), formerly PARCC. 

 

The assessments are timed and the following chart explains the number of minutes allowed per test by grade level:
