New York State Grade 3 to 8 math assessment dates announced

computerMinisink Valley Central School District will administer New York State Math assessments beginning next week at the middle school, intermediate school and Otisville Elementary School.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires every state to assess all students in grades 3-8 in English language arts and math each year, and at least once in high school. States must ensure that 95 percent of students in each public school, including charter schools, participate yearly in required state assessments.

At the state level, high exam participation helps education leaders identify achievement gaps and provide extra support to the students who need it the most.

Here’s the schedule:

Minisink Valley Middle School:

·  Grade 7-8: Tuesday, April 30, and Wednesday, May 1
