SBA / WCAS Testing

Dear Parents and Students,

This spring your student in grades 6-8 and 10 will take the Smarter Balanced tests in math and English language arts. Students in grades 8 and 11 will also take the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS).

The results from these tests will give a more accurate picture of whether students are on track to be ready for college or career. For students in grade 10, the Smarter Balanced tests can also be used as a graduation pathway.

Most students will take the tests online. Our school is scheduled to take the tests May 15-22.  See our schedule here.  

For more information about the Smarter Balanced and WCAS tests, visit:, and click on the name of the test.

Please email Geoff Backlund if you have questions about state testing.

Thank you for continuing to work with us to make sure your student is successful. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to better support your student. We want your student to leave us with a solid foundation of skills and a future full of opportunities.
