HSA Parent Information Booklets On the Way Home...

Take the test! Parents, you can try out some sample HSA questions in the HSA Online Parent Information Booklet.
Your child received their HSA booklets in advisory class on 11/15/11. Accompanying the booklet was a letter advising you of the upcoming testing dates. Students may have up to 3 opportunities to take this statewide test. Your child's highest score will be kept as their measure of proficiency in reading and math.

King proudly made AYP (adequate yearly progress) in the 2010-11 school year. Our teachers and students are working diligently and rigorously to make it happen again this year.
We are confident that WE CAN!

The dates for the HSA rounds of testing are:
    Jan. 23-27 - HSA Round 1/Reading/Gr. 7 and 8
    Jan. 30-Feb. 3 - HSA Round 1/Math/Gr. 7 and 8
    Feb. 6-10- HSA Round 1/Science/Gr. 8

    March 19-23 - HSA Round 2/Reading/Gr. 7 and 8
    March 27-April 2 - HSA Round 2/Math/Gr. 7 and 8
    April 16-20 - HSA Round 2/Science/Gr. 8

    April 30 - May 4 - HSA Round 3/Rdg/Gr. 7 and 8
    May 7-May 11- HSA Round 3/Math/Gr. 7 and 8

Please make every effort to avoid family travel, appointments or any type of absences during these testing periods. Make-up testing is available, however it does require having your child come out of one of their classes (core and/or elective).
