This letter is to inform you that Boothbay Region Elementary School will be administering the Maine Educational Assessment testing beginning in two weeks. This test assesses reading, writing and mathematics for students in grades 3 through 8 and science in grades 5 and 8th.
These tests are one piece of information that we as a school use to measure how we are preparing students to succeed academically. All public schools in Maine are required to participate.
We do encourage students to try their best on these tests. Things that you can do to help your child, are making sure they have a good night’s rest, and coming to school having had a healthy breakfast.
The testing window this year is approximately one-and-a-half months. Our first round of testing will begin on March 20th.
