On Thursday, May 16, students in Grades 3-5 will begin to complete the NC End of Grade tests for reading and math. Fifth grade students will also take the Science EOG. The EOG is an important measure of student learning and growth and our students have worked hard to prepare to do their best. However, it is not the only data point considered in measuring the progress of our students. Your child’s progress has been measured throughout this school year in a variety of ways, and you have been notified via progress reports and report cards. You may have also received information through phone calls, notes home, and parent conferences. All data regarding student growth is considered in making decisions for your child.
In accordance with the North Carolina Read to Achieve legislation, 3rd Grade students who are not proficient on the Reading EOG will have other opportunities to demonstrate appropriate growth. Parents of these students will be contacted on Friday, May 17, about next steps for their child.
Parents of all 3rd and 4th grade students will receive information about EOG scores in writing on Tuesday, May 21, or once their child has completed reading and math testing.
Parents of 5th grade students will receive information about EOG scores in writing once their child has completed reading, math, and science testing.
