Dear Third, Fourth and Fifth-Grade Parents/Guardians:
 
The New York State English Language Arts and Math Assessment Tests for 3rd, 4th and 5th will be administered in April.  The testing schedule is as follows:
 
New York State English Language Arts (ELA)
 
Day 1 April 14
Day 2 April 15
Day 3 April 16
 
Make-up tests days are April 17 April 21
 
New York State Math Assessment
 
Day 1 April 22
Day 2 April 23
Day 3 April 24
 
Make-up test days are April 27 April 29
 
Testing will start promptly at 9:00 a.m. on each day.  We ask your cooperation in seeing that your child attend school on test days.  However, if your child is ill, please refer to the make-up dates.  As you know, children perform best when fully rested and nourished.  Please make sure your child has a good nights sleep and a balanced breakfast. 
 
In addition, please avoid scheduling appointments during the testing period since make-up tests will require that children miss class instruction.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,
Franco J. Miele
Principal

2014 New York State English/Language Arts and Math Assessment Results

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released ELA and Math assessment results. Please note that there was a technical error by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in submitting the District's grade 5 math scores to NYSED. Grade 5 math scores were inaccurately displayed upon initial posting to NYSED's website and will be unavailable until the LHRIC and NYSED remedy the situation. Parent reports will be mailed by the LHRIC in September. For further inquiries please contact your school's administrator.
