Prepare Your Students for State Testing

Many of our students will participate in state testing this spring. Participation is important because results help students, parents and teachers understand whether students have mastered the content they need to know by the end of the school year to be on track for college and career success. Please help your students prepare to do their very best on these upcoming assessments.

Prepare a sus hijos para las pruebas estatales

Muchos de nuestros estudiantes participarán en las pruebas estatales durante esta primavera. La participación es importante porque los resultados ayudan a los estudiantes, padres de familia y maestros, a comprender si los estudiantes han dominado los contenidos que deben saber para el final del año escolar, para así estar preparados para el camino a la universidad y una carrera.  Por favor ayuden a sus hijos a prepararse y que tengan su mejor desempeño en las pruebas que vienen.  


Para leer la carta sobre las evaluaciones estatales, y toda la información relacionada, acuda al sitio: aurorak12.org/testing.


The goal is to inform parents and guardians about the dates state assessments will be offered, as well as participation guidelines and tips on how to help their students prepare.


The testing window for the first set of exams (WIDA ACCESS for ELLs Summative Assessment) opens on Jan. 13.


If you would like to download or print the letter and testing information, please visit aurorak12.org/testing. The information will soon be available in our top languages.


In addition, we are sending an automated call to parents letting them know that an important communication about upcoming assessments is posted on school websites. The call will be sent out to middle and high school parents on Sunday, Jan. 12 at 6 p.m. We are encouraging parents to visit your websites to read the message above and access the letter, FAQ and guide.  

Any Opt-Out letters are due no later than March 13.
