To All:
Please see below for guidance on the 3-8 Testing Program.

The make-up dates for the Grades 3-8 ELA Tests Schools are Tuesday, April
27- Wednesday, May 5th. Make-ups may be administered to students any day
that school is in session. If the school is in session all or part of the
conference day scheduled for May 3rd then, make-ups may be administered
during the school day.

Schools must arrange to administer the English Language Arts and Mathematics
Tests to students during the specified administration dates for the test.
Within each grade, schools are to administer the test on the same day to all
students except for those students who are absent. Schools may schedule the
tests for different grades on different sets of days within the specified
administration dates; for example, the school may administer the Grade 3
Mathematics Test on Wednesday, May 5, and Thursday, May 6, while
administering the Grade 5 Mathematics Test on Thursday, May 6, and Friday,
May 7.
