Dear Dayton Oaks Families,
PARCC and MAP testing are well underway. The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that measure whether students are on track to be successful in college and careers. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 at DOES have been taking 3 units of ELA (English Language Arts) tests and 4 units of Math tests.
As we did in the Fall, grades 1 and 2 will take MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) tests this spring. Due to the heavy PARCC schedule, students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will not take the MAP tests this Spring.
We have a busy few weeks in store at Dayton Oaks, as we journey to the end of the school year. We truly appreciate all the ways you support our school. Whether you volunteer a few hours a week in the school, help to organize student activities and resources, or participate in any of our PTA events, we appreciate you. As we start to think ahead to next year, please consider how your strengths and talents may help to further strengthen our school community. More information will be forthcoming over the summer, as we identify the many ways we can support our students.
