  • Assessment Participation in BSCSD

    As we head toward spring and the administration of the grades 3-8 state assessments in English Language Arts (April 1 – 8) and Mathematics (April 30 – May 7), we want to thank our district’s teachers, parents, students, and administrators for the work that is done each day to maximize each student’s learning potential. As a part of our educational program, we utilize a variety of assessments – local and state assessments alike – to determine each student’s progress and how we can best address any areas of weakness or opportunities for extension of learning.
