Prepare Your Students for State Testing

Many of our students will participate in state testing this spring. Participation is important because results help students, parents and teachers understand whether students have mastered the content they need to know by the end of the school year to be on track for college and career success. Please help your students prepare to do their very best on these upcoming assessments.

To view the testing letter and related information, please visit aurorak12.org/testing.

Prepare a sus hijos para las pruebas estatales

Muchos de nuestros estudiantes participarán en las pruebas estatales durante esta primavera. La participación es importante porque los resultados ayudan a los estudiantes, padres de familia y maestros, a comprender si los estudiantes han dominado los contenidos que deben saber para el final del año escolar, para así estar preparados para el camino a la universidad y una carrera.  Por favor ayuden a sus hijos a prepararse y que tengan su mejor desempeño en las pruebas que vienen.  

Para leer la carta sobre las evaluaciones estatales, y toda la información relacionada, acuda al sitio:  aurorak12.org/testing.
