Each year, students take the Kansas State Assessment in grades 3 through 8 and once in high school. This year, students are taking the Transitional Assessment, which is a one year assessment written to pilot new test questions for the 2014-2015 state assessment. USD 345 has also experienced many of the same challenges other districts have faced with the Kansas State Assessments this year. Our staff is working hard to provide a positive environment for our students as they are testing. We are taking the slow-and-steady approach to testing to make the best experience possible for our kids. The flexibility and patience of students and staff has been exceptional and their efforts are appreciated!
