Students in grades 7-8 who have chosen to learn online this semester will take the annual Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) Friday, April 2, and Friday, April 23, at their home junior high school with additional safety strategies in place. Students who currently learn in-person will NOT BE IN THE BUILDING these two days because these are professional development days with no school. We selected these days to provide the greatest opportunity for social distancing and other safety measures for your student.
Students in grades 7-8 who are learning in person this semester will take the ISAP during regular school hours April 19-22.
