2020 CMAS Test Schedule
Testing begins on March 30, 2020. All students will take the CMAS Math and CMAS English Language Arts (ELA) tests. All 8th grade students will take the CMAS Science on April 13-16.
Testing will begin promptly at 8:40 on the days above; please ensure your student arrives to school on time having eaten a healthy breakfast. Also, please avoid scheduling appointments during testing times. Please note that we have worked hard this year to create a testing schedule that is the least disruptive to our typical school operations. Any questions/concerns should be directed to David Weisbart at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Student Opt Out
If you would like to opt your student out of the CMAS Assessments, please email or send written notification including which assessments you are opting out by Thursday, March 12. Note that the district deadline for submitting written requests to opt a student out of testing is March 5.
Students who attend school that are not participating in testing and have been opted-out by their families will report to the cafeteria where they will remain until testing is complete. Students will be reading or working on school work. Students will not be permitted to use electronic devices connected to the wireless internet as this will interfere with testing.
Students not participating in testing who plan to arrive after testing concludes each day should go through the same check-in process as if it were a normal school day. A guardian must call to excuse the absence and students should report to the office to sign in.
