Mandatory Student Assessments and Diagnostics

All virtual learners are required to be brought to the home school building for participation in the following mandatory testing sessions each year.  Specific schedules are not yet available and will be shared at a later date.

 

In addition to the mandatory assessments below, parents should also be prepared to bring students for proctored testing for national assessments, such as ACT and SAT, as well as testing for those recommended for initial Gifted placement.

 

Students failing to participate in any mandatory assessment will be placed on academic probation and be at-risk for removal from the Virtual Program.  Please see the Virtual Program Probationary Status section for more information.
