Hello, Parents of 9th - 10th Grade Scholars!
NWEA Testing will begin next week and being prepared is key. As this week comes to a close, and as next week begins, English and Math teachers will be reviewing preparations for the Fall NWEA test with your scholar.
We will begin testing next week on Thursday and Friday, October 8 and 9, during the time scholars usually attend their Math and English classes. Make-up sessions will be scheduled on Wednesdays beginning on October 14. Please make sure your scholar has a quiet place in which to participate in testing. It is also important that they eat ahead of time and that they are well-rested.
The district has provided a document with directions for testing the readiness of your computer or Chromebook for taking the test. These directions are attached as a PDF file that will open when you click on the file.
It is also recommended that parents and scholars watch the following video which will assist you in making sure your device is ready for testing: https://bit.ly/3ifr4aZ
Your math and English teachers will be your first point of contact if there are any issues with your devices. Please let them know as soon as possible if there are any problems.
On behalf of all of us at East Technical High School, thank you for paying attention to this important matter and helping your scholar to succeed.
