Unbridled Learning testing begins this week

-A A +A

  LaRue County High School students will start taking the Quality Core End of Course exams required by the Unbridled Learning Accountability System on Thursday, May 15.

Students in grades 3-8 will complete the K-PREP exams May 21-28. The results will impact the status of our schools and district under the federal No Child Left Behind legislation as well as the state system.

Each school will run its own testing schedule during this timeframe. Schools are gearing up right now for testing. Students have been challenged by their principals and teachers to do their best. Exciting “prep” rallies and other activities will be getting under way across the district to celebrate student success and encourage students to give their best effort in the coming weeks.

How can you help your student be ready for the test? There are four simple steps you can take:

Readiness: Make sure your student gets plenty of rest. Eating a good breakfast will also help students perform at their best.

Encouragement: Encourage your student to do his/her best every day of the assessments, to take their time and double check their work.

Attendance: Good attendance is important during this busy time. However, if your student has to miss or check out of school, please be sure to notify the school in advance so we can plan a make-up test for your student.

Volunteering: Some schools are still looking for volunteers to help during testing. If you would like to volunteer to help, please call your school.
