• State Testing starts in April

    Greetings families, 

    For the first time in two year we are going to do the Oregon Smarter Balanced Assessment and 8th grade science assessments in the spring. Language arts begins in the last two weeks of April; math will occur the first two weeks of May. Watch for class-specific information as dates approach. Per state law, families have the right to opt-out of state assessments. The Portland Public Schools testing opt-out form is available here.
