Parent Opt Out forms for Testing are now to be offered in the Student Handbook, but because the legislation was passed after handbooks were printed, we are making them available online and in buildings. New changes for accommodations will be out at the end of October in the Procedures Manual. As the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) committees continue to meet and put more pieces together, there will be changes that need to be made throughout the school year.
All of MN MCA and MTAS testing will be administered through Pearson Access Next as it was this past school year. PANext is working on some updates and changes, so while things will be the same, there will hopefully be some new improvements for this school year.
- MCA and MTAS testing window is March 5th - May 4th for reading and math
- MCA testing window is March 5th - May 11th for science
- ACCESS for ELL's grade K-12 window is January 29th through March 23rd
- ACT plus Writing is April 3rd
