    MAP Testing

    Winter MAP testing begins on Monday, December 11. We are really excited about this testing session as MAP is aligned to the GA Milestones and will be a close predictor of performance.  Beginning in January, teachers and tutors will be able to adjust instruction, based on this data, to meet the needs of students to impact performance and ensure mastery of the content standards.  Parents, your cooperation is critical to students' success.  Please refrain from early check-outs, or doctor's appointments as we test all students in grades K - 8.  Please ensure that students arrive on time and eat a good breakfast!
