2021 NYS 3 - 8 Testing Information

testing.jpg thumbnail182357

Dear Parents/Guardians:


Despite the disruptions of the pandemic, we are confident the level of instruction provided our students will see our students performing well on these assessments. Please understand that our internal system of assessing and addressing students’ progress in reading, writing, and mathematics assures our students’ progress is closely monitored. The New York State assessments do not impact a students’ report card grade but are a requirement of the Federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). 


As we stated in the prior letter, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) recently released a memorandum regarding the Spring 2021 grades 3-8 English Language Arts, Mathematics and Science Assessments. It stated that “NYSED submitted a formal request to the United States Department of Education (USDE) to waive state testing requirements at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.” Pending a USDE ruling, NYSED has decided the following:

 

If the waiver request is granted, 3-8 assessments will be cancelled

otherwise -
Assessments will be shortened and administered in one session for each subject discipline


The Grade 3-8 ELA, Mathematics and Science assessments will be administered on the following dates:


  1. ELA - April 19th  through April 29th
    Mathematics - May 3rd through May 14th
    Grade 4 and 8 Science - June 7th through June 11th
 

Administering these assessments with the current COVID restrictions poses logistical issues that require careful planning. Therefore, to assure students’ health and safety during the administration, our schools will need ample time to prepare. Please complete the form below to indicate if your child will not be taking these assessments. 


A child’s refusal to take these assessments or “Opt-Out”, is a parent’s decision. Our schools are asking for advance notice to prepare appropriate environments for students taking the assessments, and for students who are not. Please use this link to indicate if you will not have your child take the NYS ELA, Math and/or Science Assessment.


Please click on the Google Form link below if you plan to have your child “opt out” of one or both assessments.

Finley Pride Week

During the week of February 22nd through the 26th, the students of Finley Middle School participated in Spirit Week. In-person and virtual students alike dressed up in the favorite Sports Team gear on Monday, celebrated Rainbow Day on Tuesday, got cozy on Wednesday for Pajama Day, expressed themselves with Wacky Hair/Hat Day on Thursday, and rounded out the week by showing Finley Pride on Friday. Students then submitted pictures of themselves (from home or school!) to enter to win a variety of gift cards to local businesses generously donated by the PTA. Many thanks to the Finley PTA for partnering in this fun event and to all of the students who participated.
