About testing, I heard this from a parent (verified with e-mail from school):
1) No math this week because of SBAC testing.
All the kids in the school miss math instruction for a week because testing is going on? That should tell you something about this test.
2) The school has run out of paper for the students so they are recycling paper and are not assigning homework.
No paper and there's still about a month left of school?
