Wednesday, June 9th – Civics Pilot MCAS (8th grade Bruins only)
The MA Department of Early and Secondary Education has announced that students in grades 6-8 will participate in MCAS this school year. However, there will be some changes due to the interruptions in learning over the past year. Each tested subject will only have one session (usually two sessions). There is no negative impact this school year in regards to accountability, but schools and parents will still receive scores. WMS has decided to schedule our MCAS testing sessions on Wednesdays (early release days). By doing so, we will be able to maximize our full school days with classroom instruction. For those who need extra time while testing, we will make sure they have the extra time to finish the assessment. Please know, fully remote students will have access to take the assessments at home on the days students are testing in school. I will provide more information as time gets closer.
