This includes the new state exams: the 10th and 11th grade English Language Arts (ELA) Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC), the 11th grade Math SBAC, and the End of Course Exam (EOC) in Math, and the EOC for Biology. All students will be provided an additional copy of their testing schedule at school on April 16th.

Students required to test must be at school for the 7:25 a.m. test start time. On these days transportation runs on normal schedule. Some students have the option on these days to have a late arrival based on what grade they are in and what tests they have previously passed. Students utilizing a late start need to find their own transportation to school or ride the bus and attend a studyhall. Students who wish to participate in a studyhall must report to the bandroom by 7:25 a.m.
