Upcoming Smarter Balanced Assessments

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Assessment season is upon us! Your child will be participating in Delaware’s accountability assessment, the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), in both ELA and Math. In addition, 8th grade students will complete the DCAS Science assessment. Testing will begin with 8th grade Science, then ELA and Math. The SBA includes an audio component, and so earbuds are required. We recommend your child brings his/her own earbuds to school; however, we will also have some for student use. Please keep in mind that the newer iPhone earbuds (with the lightening adapter) will not work with our computers, and neither will Bluetooth earbuds/headphones. Only standard/traditional headphones are compatible with District computers.
Below is table that explains when WTC students will be testing. Please review this table, and ensure that your child is prepared for his/her testing weeks by getting a good night’s sleep and eating a healthy breakfast prior to testing. As always, our cafeteria is open for free breakfast at 7:50AM every morning. Thank your continued support!

Home Access Help
