Important Testing Information
We recently emailed you about the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) assessments that your child is scheduled to take this spring. The assessments can only be administered in the school and cannot be given remotely. This means that if your child is going to take the assessments, they would need to physically come to the school on the testing days. At the present time, we are planning on testing the in-person students on the following dates:
Monday April 26 - Grades 6 - 8, ELA and Math units 1
Tuesday April 27 - Grades 6 - 8, ELA and Math units 2
Thursday April 29 - Grades 6 - 8, ELA and Math units
Tuesday May 4 - Grade 8 only - Science Units 1 - 3
If your child is absent on any of these days then they would need to do make-up testing on another in-person school day. All testing units must be completed by the student or the test will not be scored.
If you do not want your child to come to the school on those dates and test you can fill out this OPT OUT FORM. Our school will also be prepared to provide meaningful assignments and coursework should you decide to opt your child out of the tests. If you have already filled out the OPT OUT FORM you do not need to fill it out again. We encourage you to fill out the form by Friday March 12 if you are choosing to opt out of the assessment. (Here is the OPT OUT FORM IN SPANISH)
More information about the CMAS assessment can be found at cde.state.co.us/assessment/resources. Otherwise, please contact your child’s school if you have any questions.
