The New York State ELA test for grades 3-5 will begin NEXT WEEK (April 2nd). In case you missed our PTA meeting and slide presentation, you can view it on PS 321’s website HERE. At the meeting, the Testing Task Force, Principal Liz Phillips, and PS 321 teachers discussed the current state of high-stakes testing and explained why many parents, teachers, and administrators are continuing to push for change. We have updated our recent FAQs about the NYS ELA and Math tests for PS 321. If you would like a pdf of this, or a test refusal letter, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
