    Dear PPS Parents and Guardians,

    As we welcome students back to the new school year, an important step for teachers is to understand your student’s most essential learning needs. To collect this valuable information, students will take Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments. The MAP assessment is a low stakes test – this means that the results are not used for grading students or for school accountability purposes. 

    Normally, the MAP assessment is conducted in the classroom setting, but because of distance learning, students will take this assessment at home. Testing will take place between September 28 and October 23. Many students, especially younger children, will need assistance from an adult in the home. Please review the PPS Parent Guide for Fall 2020 MAP Testing to learn more about the assessment. Your student’s teacher will provide further information about when the test will be given. The district will provide your student’s scores to you sometime in early to mid-November.

    Thank you.
