PSSA TESTING UPDATE
In February, all parents received a letter from Mr. Mull with information on the upcoming PSSA testing.
Our 2017 PSSA testing dates and times are as follows:
English/Language Arts (All grades)
April 3: 8:30-11:00AM
April 4-6: 9:00-11:00 AM
Math (All grades)
April 25-27: 9:00-11:00 AM
Science (8th grade only)
May 2-3: 12:10-1:40 PM
Teachers will inform students of testing locations and times as the dates draw nearer. Although specific times have been scheduled for test completion,
students may request additional time in order to complete the test and we will ensure they have the time they need.
The state provides for the right of any parent/guardian to excuse their child from PSSA testing if, upon inspection of the testing materials, the assessment is in conflict with their religious beliefs.
We should be receiving materials from the state by March 20. We would like to conclude meetings to review the materials by March 29 so that testing arrangements can be finalized. Parents/guardians who wish to review the assessment materials may do so by contacting Mr. Mull as soon as possible to schedule a meeting time. firstname.lastname@example.org
Historically, T/E Middle School students have performed very well on these assessments, and we are confident that this tradition of excellence will continue. If you have any questions related to the testing schedule or process, please feel free to reach out to me by email or phone. Thank you in advance for your support!
