State Assessment Information For XHS Students & Parents

Online State Assessments based on Common Core State Standards begins Tuesday, February 17.  

These are rigorous, high stakes assessments that will challenge our entire spectrum of students regardless of their academic level.  I anticipate students having the ability to stay focused throughout each assessment, over the course of the 13 assessment days, being the biggest obstabcle.  XHS teachers have worked hard over the past couple of years shifting to Common Core Standards where applicable and implementing strategies for higher level, more imbedded learning in the classroom.  Parents can support their child's success on these assessments by discussing with your teenager the expectations you have about their effort and by getting them to sleep well and eat good breakfast and lunch.

Together, we will be successful on this initial year of new assessments!

A letter was sent home to the parents of 9th grade students last week.  If you did not see the letter, click here.
