Terra Nova Results
Delayed 

If you have a child in grades 3-7, your child completed Terra Nova testing in March. The Terra Nova results will not be received by the school until mid-May this year. This is due to a company transition from McGraw-Hill systems to Data Recognition Corporation systems. We are hopeful that reports will arrive in time to be sent home with report cards. Thank you for your patience.
