On Tuesday, May 2nd, Wednesday, May 3rd, and Thursday, May 4th we will administer the NYS Mathematics Assessment to all students in grades 3-8.
It is important to encourage your child to concentrate on during the assessment; however, it is just as important to assure him/her that promotion to the next grade level does not depend on the result of this assessment. The NYS ELA and Mathematics Assessments are tools that help us assess how well students are achieving compared to other students of their age and grade level. In addition, it also assists us in identifying who may be in need of support services.
Please make every effort to ensure that your child is on time and in school during the NYS Assessments. Families can support their children by:
- · Ensuring the student is well rested on the night prior to the assessments.
- · Ensuring the student has access to a healthy breakfast either at home or at school on the days of the assessment.
- · Ensuring the student’s everyday routines are normal and predictable at home. The best thing that you can say or do is simply to remind your child to do his/her best.
Thank you for your support. Results from the assessments will be mailed to families next fall.
