Spring Testing Schedule
Testing schedule

Dear Students and Families, 

During the week of April 10th -14th, RCS high school students will complete state testing. Please see the attached testing schedule below. 

Students will complete the M-STEP tests on their school-issued device. These tests can ONLY be completed on a school-issued device; a personal device will not be allowed, nor will it work. 11th grade students must bring their charged school-issued device to school on both of these days. They should also bring their charger. 

Students will NOT be allowed to have their cell phone on them during any testing. Cell phones should be left in their car or locker. If a cell phone is brought into the testing room, it must be completely turned off and left at the front of the room until all testing is completed. Students should bring a number 2 pencil and an approved calculator for testing. 

If an 11th-grade student does not have a school-issued Chromebook yet, please make a Chromebook Pick-Up Appointment

Further communication with a detailed schedule for testing week will be emailed after Spring Break. Please let us know if you have any questions.
