! PARCC Testing Schedule (Updated!)
We just received approval from the district to alter our testing procedure for the April PARCC testing at Fairview High School. We will be allowed to have instruction for ALL students during what were originally designated as testing periods.
Students who are participating in the PARCC testing (whose parents have not given permission for a test refusal) will receive instructions to report to a computer lab during their 4th, 5th, or 6th open periods on block days. Since there is a 55 minute common lunch period on block days, the period that students use for lunch on non-block days is a free period. This means students who will be testing will still have a 55 minute common lunch period, just not the additional 90 minute free period. That 90 minute period will be used to test students (whose parents have not given permission for a test refusal) so that there will be no further loss of instructional time for any student. This does mean, however, that testing will need to continue into May in order to have enough days to complete the testing without losing instruction. Math and language arts classes will take place for all students during all of the remaining PARCC testing window.
The updated schedule document can be viewed here.
