Dear Parent/Guardian,
This April and May we will be administering the New York State ELA and Math assessments in grades 3 – 8. These performance-based assessments were established in 1999 and have occurred annually since then. New York State is required by the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to administer these assessments to guarantee that all students attending public schools are receiving a strong academic foundation. For more information about the upcoming testing click here.
