Here at Oakland Tech — and at schools throughout the state — teachers and staff have been working hard to implement Common Core in the classrooms. We’ll be conducting testing throughout most of April (with make ups scheduled for May) to see how well we’re doing and how well students absorb and understand the curriculum.
We strongly encourage all families to allow their children to be tested. If we fail to have a 95% completion rate, we’ll have to conduct interim testing in the fall, which will negatively impact instructional time. Please read the letter to families below, which explains the exams in detail, as well as review the testing schedule, also below.
