Data collected from these state-mandated exams contribute to St. Vrain Valley School’s comprehensive suite of tools and programs designed to enhance student achievement, promote diversified and individualized learning opportunities, identify areas of need to support early intervention, and provide valuable data that helps inform future curriculum and instructional development.  Detailed information about Colorado’s assessment program can be found on the Colorado Department of Education Assessment page at http://www.cde.state.co.us/assessment/generalinfo

We are asking for your help and support during the upcoming testing weeks regarding a few items.  We are asking that students leave iPads, cellphones, or any other electronic device at home during the weeks of testing,

April 8 – April 18.  One item students will need to bring to school during the testing window is a pair of headphones.  Students will use headphones for the computer-based test.

Thank you for your continued partnership as we strive for excellence in serving our students, parents and community. If you have any questions, please contact us directly at 303-828-3391 x34501.
