STAR 360 Assessment

Good Afternoon,

During the week of October 5th, our students will be taking the STAR 360 assessment. This assessment takes the place of the NWEA test and does not require as much time to administer.  We will still be able to gather important information in the areas of Reading and Math.  The results will be used as data points to help support our students at all levels. Should you have any questions regarding the STAR assessment, please contact the school.
