Dear TMS Community,
State assessments have begun. Please refer to our online calendar.
Please know that our gentle approach (no fanfare) to assessing our students' skills is unique, as we put the child first. Please call me (Cell: 401-575-2855) if you wish.
To be frank: there is no longer a stressful test. PARCC is now formatted sensibly and is in line with its intended purpose: to serve as nothing more than an external-objective measure of our boys' and girls' achievement towards the learning standards and skills they need for high school and beyond. PARCC's original format included 15-20 hours of testing: that was absurd. Thank goodness our voices were heard!
We will not offer more than one hour or so per day...gentle, low-stakes process -- as it should be.
Yours in partnership,
Dr. Laurie Dias-Mitchell
