Message from the Superintendent / Testing

April 1, 2019

 

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

The NYS English Language Arts (ELA) Assessments will be administered April 2°d, 3rd and 4th. The NYS Mathematics Assessment will be administered May 1-3. We encourage all students to participate in the NYSED assessment program. While no one data point can ever provide a complete picture of a student, the data produced from these assessments is helpful in our evaluation of the effectiveness of our programs and practices. It also helps us to measure the growth of our students.

 

We understand and recognize that in recent years some families have chosen not to participate in the NYSED assessment program. The Wainscott Common School District acknowledges and respects your decision regarding your student’s participation in the NYSED assessment program.

 

If you have questions regarding these assessments or any other New York State Education Department programs, we encourage you to refer to Engage New York, which can be found on the NYSED website, www.nysed.gov.

 

Please also feel free to contact my office directly with any questions or concerns.

 

Sincerely,

 

Deborah A. Haab

School Superintendent
