2021 CMAS Update and Schedules
Dear Dragon Families,
- Grades 3, 5, 7, English Language Arts CMAS
- Grade 4, 6, 8 Mathematics CMAS
- Grade 8 Science
A federal waiver was granted on March 26, 2021, creating the following optional assessments:
- Grades 4, 6, 8 English Language Arts CMAS
- Grade 3, 5, 7 Mathematics CMAS
If you would like your student to take the optional CMAS ELA or Math test, in addition to the one which is required, please contact Mrs. Samantha Myhre at [email protected] or call 303.651.7900 ext. 287 by Thursday, April 8, 2021. If you do not want them to take the optional test, you do not need to do anything.
Flagstaff Academy utilizes assessment data and additional data sources to identify ways to increase student achievement. The goal is to provide rich learning opportunities that engage students and prepare them for success in the 21st century. Data collected from these state-mandated exams contribute to Flagstaff Academy’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.
Students who are learning remotely will have the opportunity to take the assessments in-person at the school. Whether your children come in for testing is your decision, and no negative consequences will be imposed should you choose not to send them. Please contact Mrs. Samantha Myhre at [email protected] or call 303.651.7900 ext. 287 for specific test scheduling for remote learners.
To help your student best prepare for success on these assessments, we encourage students to get a restful night’s sleep, eat breakfast, and bring a clean water bottle to school. If you have any questions about how to support your student’s success during these state assessments or have concerns about your child’s participation, please feel free to contact us directly at the contact info listed below. While participation is not mandatory, it is encouraged so that we can use the data to continue to improve learning and academic support for our students.
Again, thank you for your continued partnership and support as we continue to support the success of our students. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either of us directly.
