Henderson County Schools Grades 3-8 and 9-12 Begin State Required Testing May 12

HEND COUNTY SCHOOL2 300HENDERSON, Ky. (5/10/14) — Henderson County Schools will be administering the Kentucky Performance Rating of Educational Progress state assessment beginning Monday, May 12 and concluding Friday, May 16.

This test will be given to students in grades 3-8 in the areas of reading, math, science, social studies and on demand writing. [See corresponding chart.] State regulations allow for only five consecutive days to be designated as K-PREP test days. Make-up testing will occur in the afternoons after the regular testing session.

Each school will be notifying parents as to specific schedules. During this end of year testing, Henderson County Schools ask that parents and community members encourage our students and provide positive support.

Tips for a successful testing experience:

  • We encourage students to be present each day since it is much less stressful for students to test with the regular class than individually during a make-up session. If possible, please schedule doctor/dental appointments during the late afternoon hours.

  • Limit nighttime extra-curricular activities and outings to allow for a good night’s rest.

  • Provide a calm, stress-free environment each morning as your child gets ready for school. Get up in plenty of time to avoid morning rush and anxiety.

  • Provide a nutritious breakfast.

  • Have the student dress comfortably.

  • Most importantly, express confidence in the child’s ability to do his/her best.

Henderson County Schools would like to thank parents and community members for continued support and encouragement as our students get prepped and ready for K-PREP

Henderson County High School and Central Academy will be administering On Demand writing tests associated with the Kentucky Performance Rating of Educational Progress state assessment beginning Thursday, May 15 and concluding Friday, May 16. The writing test will be given to all sophomores and juniors. Students enrolled in English 10, Algebra 2, U.S. History and Biology have now completed an end of course exam administered by ACT Quality Core. Additional tests being administered at HCHS include AP Testing for students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses, WorkKeys for seniors enrolled in Career and Technical Education classes and COMPASS for all seniors not yet classified as college or career ready.
