A letter sent out from Superintendent Nyland:
Seattle Public Schools community,
I’m writing today to let you know that on Wednesday we will receive our
final state Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) test scores.
Earlier this month, while reviewing preliminary data, we discovered an
anomaly with Beacon Hill’s test results. We requested that the scores at
Beacon Hill International School be reviewed by the state Office of the
Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). We hope to receive the
results of that review in the next several weeks.
Seattle Public Schools is conducting its own review of the situation,
and is in the final stages of a review of our policies, procedures and
practices related to testing.
We will keep you informed as more
information becomes available.
Thank you for your patience as we review this matter.
Dr. Larry Nyland
Seattle Public Schools
I do not see this letter at the SPS website but a parent received it and sent it along. I'll have to ask about the "anomaly."
