2017-2018

the TEST

Our students, in grades 3-5 will be participating in the STAAR tests on the following dates. Please mark your calendars now and try to avoid scheduling any appointments or absences for your child on these days. CES will be a "CLOSED CAMPUS" on STAAR testing days in order to protect the integrity of the test. This means we will not be allowed to have any visitors or volunteers on campus.

Thank you for understanding.

IStation: IStation is the Universal Screener designated by the district for all students to participate in order to assess their growth in foundational skills. All students will be assessed using IStation at least one time per month in reading and in math. Teachers monitor the student growth and can assign interventional activities to directly correlate to the skills in which the student is not showing mastery. IStation activities are also available for your student to work on while at home. Please contact your teachers if you have any questions regarding the use of IStation.
