  • Changes to Test Assignments for 2019

    Beginning with the 2018-19 school year, students in grades 3-8 who take the alternate assessments will be tested based on their enrolled grade rather than on their age-based grade (previously called tested grade). For high school students meeting the eligibility criteria for alternate assessments, the Individualized Education Program team will determine when it is most appropriate for the student to receive instruction on the standards for each subject for which the alternate assessment is aligned.

    Please contact your DTC-Alt if you are interested. Submissions must be completed by May 4, 2018.
