New York State Assessment update: Grade 6 computer-based tests to take place April 8-9

Dear Families of Students in Grades 3-8:

In light of the technical difficulties with the state’s computer-based testing platform this week, students in grade 6 will take the New York State English Language Arts assessment this coming Monday and Tuesday, April 8 and 9. Please make sure that students come to school with a fully charged Chromebook for the tests on those days.

Students in grade 5 were able to complete the second and final day of computer-based testing as scheduled on Tuesday April 2.

Please note that the technical difficulties with the state assessments are not affecting the paper-and-pencil tests taken by students in grades 3 and 4 and grades 7 and 8.

Students in grades 7 and 8 completed the testing today, Wednesday, April 3 as scheduled.

Students grades 3 and 4 will complete the testing tomorrow, Thursday, April 4 as scheduled.

Thank you for your attention to this information and ongoing support and partnership.


Lauren Gemmill
Assistant Superintendent for Instruction
