English Mid-Year Progress Testing
All Dublin middle school students will be participating in mid-year progress testing  on Monday  and Tuesday this week. This test will help teachers understand which skills students need to focus on in preparation for state testing in May. Part of the test requires students to listen to short audio clips and respond. If you own a set of earbuds (like those used with cell phones), please have your child bring them to school  on Monday  and  Tuesday . Please do NOT allow them to bring expensive headphones. There is no need to purchase earbuds if you do not already own them. The school will provide headphones to students who do not bring earbuds with them
