The Petrides School

Schedule for Administration of NY State MATH Exam - 3RD AND 4TH GRADE STUDENTS

April 24, 2021 
 
 
Dear Middle School Parents
 
We are scheduled to administer the NY State Math exam to students in grades 3 through 8 in the coming weeks.  To help us better plan for the administration of this test, we are asking you to declare your intentions by letting us know if you plan to send your child to school to participate in testing.
 
What you should know:
  • All students (both blended learning and fully remote students) may take the exam.  The exam MUST be administered in-person, in our school building.  
  • The Math exam will be administered May 3rd through May 14th.  If participating, your child will be scheduled to take the exam on one day during this window.
  • The Math exam will be different this year: the exam will contain only multiple-choice questions; testing will be one day only.
  • Any student who does not take the State exams will NOT be penalized.
Please complete the brief survey at the link below to let us know if your child(ren) will be taking the NY State Math exam this year.
 
 
Feel free to contact Ms. Souffrin with any questions or concerns.
