Each spring, the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) requires all schools to participate in statewide testing in Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies in Grades 3-11. Students in Clarenceville will begin testing on April 9, 2019. On Tuesday, April 9, only students in Grades 8, 10 and 11 will be at school for testing. All other students will not report that day. Your school principal will inform you of specific testing dates and times for student testing. For more information about the testing, please read this letter from SHEILA A. ALLES, INTERIM STATE SUPERINTENDENT. For more information about "What Parents Should Know About Assessments" please read the memo from MDE.
