Mid-Year NWEA Testing

On January 17, we will begin administering the mid-year NWEA assessment in reading and math. NWEA is a computer-based test that provides your child's teacher and/or team with valuable information about your child's growth which helps us to adjust our practices moving forward. Tests are administered by the teacher within the child's classroom and typically last less than an hour, though students may take longer if needed. Teachers schedule their testing sessions based on their class schedules and student needs. Tests are spaced out over multiple days to avoid assessment fatigue. Check out NWEA's family toolkit for additional information here.

If you have any questions regarding NWEA testing, please feel free to reach out to your child's teacher, Mr. Ling, or me. We anticipate that testing will be complete by the end of January.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Asbestos Notification

The Northwood School Board is required by law to notify all “occupants” of the school regarding the existence of asbestos within the school and the plan to manage it. Following a plan developed by the Board and supported by the community, asbestos within Northwood School has been removed or sealed following prescribed procedures with the exception of a small number of floor tiles which pose no danger to students, staff, or anyone using the building. If you have any questions regarding this notification or would like to review the asbestos management plan, please feel free to call the SAU at 603-942-1290 or the Northwood School office at 603-942- 5488.
