Parent Chris Stewart has organized an evening for parents to discuss standardized testing. With the changes in the state test and the newness of MAP testing, it is a good time to talk about the issues.
Issues to explain:
- parent education
- goals of testing
- benefits of testing
- costs of testing
- parental rights
- national perspective
Issues for feedback:
- are these the best way to meet the district's academic goals?
- what you might like to see in SPS
- ideas on testing frequency for different age groups
The meeting is Monday, April 4th at Thornton Creek Elementary, from 6-8 p.m.
