AZ Merit Testing for April

Dear Andrada Families,

On Thursday, April 5th, we will begin AZ Merit testing. Students will be tested in English 9, 10, and 11, as well as Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2. Because of the length of the tests, we have a special schedule for the seven days of testing. I am attaching the schedule for your information.

Once a student begins, they have to complete the entire test. Keep this in mind when picking your student up early. Please encourage your student to arrive on time so they do not have to schedule a make-up date for testing.

AZ Merit is just one assessment that we use to determine if your child has mastered the standards our teachers have taught all year. We use this information to celebrate what we’ve done well and to make improvements where they are needed. Our scores also play a major role in our school label/letter grade. Our students and teachers have worked hard all year, and I am looking forward to seeing the results.

As always, thank you for being our partner in your child’s education. Please see the attached schedule for April 5th through 13th.

Sincerely,

Julia Kaiser, Principal
