If your child has an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) or a 504 plan, he or she may be eligible to take the test with accommodations. If you are unsure, contact your child’s teacher to find out whether any accommodations will be made.

In preparation for the assessments, here are some tips for the test days:

  • Ensure that your student arrives to school on time.
  • Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep.
  • Provide a good breakfast the days of the test.
  • Express your confidence in your child’s ability to do his/her best.
  • Avoid upsetting situations or changes in routine, if possible.

Thanks for providing the extra support your child needs to be successful.
