State testing (SBAC) will be held from May 10th-27th with make-ups scattered from the 16th-27th. During SBAC testing, we will be following a block schedule (as shared in the monthly newsletter and HERE). Here are some quick reminders for SBAC testing:
ONLY A GEMS issued Chromebook may be used for testing. If your student uses their own device, and does not have a GEMS issued chromebook, they will be checking one out from the library daily.
Bluetooth headphones are not permitted, but students may bring their own wired headphones. We will also be providing them if need be.
Students will need to bring their GEMS issued Chromebooks, and Chromebook chargers daily during testing.
Students will not be allowed to have their cell phones or smart devices (including smart watches) on them while testing. All electronic devices (excluding their Chromebook) must be powered off and in their backpacks throughout the duration of their testing.
A small snack will be provided to the students during their daily 15 minute snack break. If your student has a special dietary restriction, please send them with their own snack.
Please see the additional LINK BELOW for more detailed information regarding SBAC testing.
