RISE Testing

Dear Students and Families,

      Our RISE end of year testing is coming up quickly.  As you may be aware, online students will be asked to complete their testing in person at their neighborhood school.  At Sandy, we will be doing this testing on Fridays, as there will not be other students in the building at that time.  We have put together the following schedule for our RISE testing.  

Please plan to have your student here, with their school Chromebook, during their assigned times.  If they finish a test before the end of a session we will have them call home to be picked up.  Most students are anticipated to finish within 90 minutes.  We take a short break during the middle of the test as well.  

      If you have additional questions, please call the Sandy front office at 801-826-9325.
