Michigan, along with all other states, is required by law to assess students’ proficiency levels in various subject areas and grade levels. We are in the process of administering the following state assessments:
Grades 6 and 7 – M-Step English Language Arts and Mathematics
Grade 8 – PSAT Reading and Math, M-Step Social Studies and Science
The spring state assessments are required to be given in-person. Like so many other things this year, our protocols for conducting spring state assessments will look different in order to protect the health and safety of our students and teachers. Students will test following social distancing requirements and additional precautions will be in place, such as keeping materials sanitized.
We will be conducting the 6th & 7th grade M-STEP testing while continuing on our regular hybrid schedule.
6th-8th grade Track A students attend Wolfe MS for in-personal instruction while Track B students independently learn from home on Mondays & Tuesdays. On Wednesdays both tracks Independent Learn from home using our Wednesday remote learning schedule. Students log on to their 1st – 6th hour classes from 8:00am-1:10pm and independently learn from 1:30-3:00pm. 6th-8th grade Track B students attend Wolfe MS for in-personal instruction while Track A students independently learn from home on Thursdays and Fridays. Regular breakfast and lunch is served. Dismiss at 2:00pm with normal bus runs.
We will continue to monitor health data for our community and will make any other changes to our spring state assessment plans necessary to keep our students, families, and staff safe.
