Hello JTM Parents,
I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself and share future testing dates with you. This is my 2nd year at JTM as the Intervention and Testing Coordinator. Intervention, also known as PLT (Personal Learning Time), will continue to take place during 7th period. We will be starting these classes (along with Exploratory) next Monday, August 19th. We are in the middle of the first MAP (Measurement of Academic Progress) testing window. This will be completed by August 23rd. This is a district wide test we take 3 times throughout the school year. We will take the test again in November (4th-19th) and February (10th-24th). The data from this test allows us to see how your student is progressing and growing in math and reading. It is very important your student is here to take the test within the testing window.
Looking ahead: TNReady (TCAP) will take place April 13- May 1. I hope this helps your family with future planning. We are still waiting on paper copies of last year’s TNReady tests to arrive. As soon as they arrive they will be sent home with your student.
Please let me know if you ever have any questions regarding intervention or testing.
My email is Karli.Berman@mnps.org or you can reach me directly at school at 615-298-8095 ext. 812376.
