NEW: AIR Testing Information for Memorial Middle School

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health.  With the announcement that our  hybrid students will be attending in-person four days a week beginning March 8, we are adjusting to our Middle School AIR testing schedule.  Due to technology and test security requirements, all AIR assessments must be conducted in person with a test administrator who is an employee of the district.  To clarify what your child will be doing on each date, see the specific information below.  Students will be assigned a testing group and location.  The testing room location may be in a classroom that your child does not have class in.

 

In-Person Cohorts - Important Information

On testing days for ELA and Math, in-person cohort students will report to their designated testing room for Advisory and Periods 1, 2, 6, 7, 8.  Students will follow their normal schedule for Periods 3, 4, 5.  Only 8th graders will be affected by the Science test.  See below for specific directions for your child on each day.

 

MSO Cohorts - Important Information

Students will report to their home middle school on remote Wednesdays in order to participate in the AIR tests.  Students will be assigned a testing room location.  On these days lunch will be provided to all students free of charge, or they may bring their own.  Students should bring their district-issued iPad with them fully charged to complete the exams.  Times for reporting are outlined below.  More specifics, such as, the individual testing room locations, for each student will be shared in the near future. The Mentor Schools Online students will be the only students in the building testing on Wednesdays to insure there is plenty of room to physically distance students. They must come with and wear a mask/face covering (no gaiters). The buildings will have been cleaned thoroughly on Tuesday evening and we will have plenty of hand sanitizer available for students. They will also receive a mask break during the testing period.  District transportation will not be provided on the Wednesday MSO testing dates.

 

Regardless of cohort, should you have concerns about in-person testing for your child, please reach out to your building principal via email or phone to discuss.  Contact information is below.
