HENDERSON, 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
