Dear Parents,

End of Course (EOC) assessment(s) will be taken the week of December 10th and December 12th for those students who did not meet satisfactory performance standards. High school students must take and pass EOC exams to meet graduation requirements. Please make sure your child arrives to school on time, gets plenty of rest the night before, and eats breakfast.
Please review the following policies with your student before testing:

■ Electronic Devices—
Students are not permitted to have any electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones, smartphones, and smartwatches, at any time during testing or during breaks (e.g., restroom), even if the devices are turned off or students do not use them. If your student is found with an electronic device, his or her test will be invalidated

■ Calculators—
For Biology 1 EOC/Algebra I assessments, all calculators will be provided by the school.

■ Discussing Test Content after Testing—
The last portion of the testing rules read to students before they acknowledge the Testing Rules Acknowledgment reads: “Because the content in all statewide assessments is secure, you may not discuss or reveal details about the test items after the test. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, or posting online, for example, on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or Instagram.” Please make sure your student understands that “discussing” test content includes any kind of electronic communication, such as texting, emailing, posting to social media, or sharing online.

■ Working Independently—
Students are responsible for doing their own work during the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated.

If you have any questions related to this test administration, you may contact Ms. Valdivia at 757-2929.

Thank you for supporting your student and encouraging him or her to do his or her best during this test administration.
