There are 41 schools that have opted to do school-wide MAP testing this fall. (All schools have to test new-to-the district students in the fall but obviously, that's a much smaller number.) That's a fair number of schools and somewhat surprising.
I'd love to know each school's reasoning (and would it be the same school to school). If you see your school on this list, ask your principal and let us know.
There are six high schools: Sealth, Cleveland, Franklin, Interagency, Rainier Beach and West Seattle.
There are four K-8s: Blaine, Madrona, Orca and South Shore.
There are three middle schools; Denny, Mercer and Whitman.
There are 28 elementaries: Alki, Arbor Heights, Dearborn Park, Dunlap, Emerson, Gatewood, Hawthorne, Hay, Highland Park, Kimball, Lafayette, Laurelhurst, Lawton, Loyal Heights, Maple Elementary, MLK, Jr., McGilvra, Montlake, Olympic Hills, Olympic View, Queen Anne, Sandpoint, Stevens, Van Asselt, Viewlands and Wing Luke.
The variance in elementaries is to be noted as compared, say, to the high schools participating. That Viewlands is doing it (as a newly opened school) but not Rainier View is interesting.
