SC Student Testing Update
This past summer the S. C. Legislature changed the state testing program.† A new test called Aspire will be given in grades 3 through 8 to test reading, writing, English, math, and science.†Students in grades 4-8 will continue to take the SCPASS tests for science and social studies.††

The Aspire tests will be given on April 28 through May 1, 2015
The two SCPASS tests will be administered on May 7 and 8, 2015.


The biggest change that our students will notice is that each Aspire†sub-test†has a time limit.† Students will be†tested for approximately one hour per day, and the writing test must be completed in 30 minutes.† Some students may not finish before they must stop working and turn in their tests.

Our students are more familiar with the SCPASS tests, which have no specific time limits.† Teachers are currently providing practice for students so that they will become more comfortable with the timed tests.††† The two different science tests will allow us to assess our studentsí knowledge of the South Carolina science standards while still being able to compare our studentsí achievement with their peers nationally. †
Student Sign-outs...
If a child must be signed out from school, the person signing them out must show photo identification. The person must be on the registration card. This is for the safety of ALL of our students. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
