Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be taking the Criterion Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) during April 22nd-30th. Results will be used for instructional improvement planning and evaluation of various programs. Keep in mind that third grade students who do not pass the reading portion of the CRCT will be considered for retention. Fifth grade students who do not pass both the reading and math portions will be considered for retention. Students who do not obtain a passing score will retake the CRCT during May 19-21.
In addition to the regular instruction, teachers have prepared students for the format of the test using released test material. To ensure that your child does his/her personal best, you can give support in the following ways:
Avoid any unnecessary absences, tardies, or early check-outs. Valuable instruction is lost to your child when any portion of the instructional day is missed. The school day begins at 8:00 a.m.
Students typically do much better when they test with their peers rather than in a make-up session. We encourage daily attendance on April 22nd-30th.
Encourage your child to do his/her personal best, but avoid undue stress. Too much stress is counter productive.
As always, we want to thank you for your support throughout the year. We look forward to the remainder of the school year. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call.
