Important Information About State Testing 

State Testing Calendar

Dear PUSD Families,


Page Unified School District will be conducting state assessments this Spring. Not only is this a state requirement, testing is also a vital source of information about student achievement and progress. The information gathered from state assessments play an important role in instructional decision making for our state, district, schools and teachers. This is why participation in testing by all of our students is so important, especially this year. 


State testing must be completed in person. Processes and procedures are in place to conduct testing as safely as possible. School sites already use several mitigation strategies that include masking, social distancing, cleaning and disinfecting. The major additional strategy will be the scheduling of testing for those who are still in remote learning.  Additional transportation cannot be provided, so we are asking those that can provide their own transportation to do so on their scheduled testing days. Those that cannot provide their own transportation should ride the bus on their scheduled testing days. This scheduling will minimize the amount of students on buses and on campus. Students who are in remote learning will be in their school’s OSS site for testing. In person students will test in their classrooms. Review the testing calendar which shows the dates we are requesting remote students come to school for testing. Continually check as dates may be added as we may require additional or make-up days for remote students to complete testing
