In Person Testing Updates for 9th grade and 10th grade: 

On Wednesday, April 14th we will hold the official PSAT 9 for all 9th grade students. On Friday April 16th, we will hold the official PSAT 10 for all 10th grade students. These assessments are important because they allow students to demonstrate their progress this year.  Additionally, the data from these assessments allow teachers to see how their students are performing against the standards in order to inform instruction and adjust practice.

In Person Testing: While we believe that these tests are important, we understand that some families may decide they do not want to come in-person to participate in testing this year due to COVID-19.  All testing must be done in person as there is no remote testing option.  

If you choose to opt out, you must fill out an Opt-out form and return it to the school by Friday, March 12th. Reach out to Heather Patel (heather.patel@scienceandtech.org) if you require a PSAT opt out form. Please complete this form no later than March 12th as this information is vital to our planning process.  We need to have an exact count of students who will and will not be participating so that we can adjust staffing, testing schedules and adhere to all health and safety guidelines.

 

In Person Testing Updates for 11th grade: 

SAT: On Tuesday, April 13th we will hold the official SAT. This assessment is important for the college application process and this opportunity is the only SAT paid for by the Colorado Department of Education for all juniors in the state.

CMAS: On Wednesday, April 21st we will hold the 11th Grade Science Assessment for High Schools, part of the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) program. This standardized exam is aligned to the Colorado Academic Standards, which are statewide expectations of what students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade. This assessment is important because they allow students to demonstrate their progress in Science.  

Additionally, the data from these assessments allow teachers to see how their students are performing against the standards in order to inform instruction and adjust practice.

In Person Testing: While we believe that these tests are important, we understand that some families may decide they do not want to come in-person to participate in testing this year due to COVID-19.  All testing must be done in person as there is no remote testing option.  

If you choose to opt out, you must fill out an Opt-out form and return it to the school by Friday, March 12th. Reach out to Heather Patel (heather.patel@scienceandtech.org) if you require an SAT opt out form and Angie Turek (angela.turek@scienceandtech.org) if you require a CMAS opt-out form. Please complete this form no later than March 12th as this information is vital to our planning process.  We need to have an exact count of students who will and will not be participating so that we can adjust staffing, testing schedules and adhere to all health and safety guidelines.

If you are participating in the virtual learning option and you wish to have your student participate in CMAS testing this year, please email angela.turek@scienceandtech.org to let us know by March 12th.  This information is very important in allowing us to plan for testing and we appreciate your cooperation in letting us know as soon as possible.

We appreciate your support during this time.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.
