This year, NYS set the window of dates for the math assessment as May 1-3, allowing individual districts to decide which two days to administer the assessments. Originally, all North Colonie elementary schools were to administer the test on the first two days, May 1 and 2. We have since learned that the May 1 date overlaps with the scoring of the NYS ELA assessment.
As a result, we have changed the district’s math assessment dates for students in grades 3-6 to May 2 and 3. (Grades 7 and 8 were originally scheduled for May 2 and 3, and this will remain as such.) This will provide our students the best circumstances for taking these tests, including having them administered by North Colonie faculty and staff rather than substitute teachers. Thank you for your understanding.
North Colonie Deputy Superintendent
