At Daniel Hand High School only Juniors will be taking state mandated tests this spring. Juniors will take the SAT on March 24, 2021. If school is cancelled or delayed on this date, the State has determined April 27-28, 2021 to be used as make up dates.
Juniors will also be taking the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Assessment on April 28, 2021. The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in November 2015. This spring is the third operational year of the NGSS Assessment and students in Grades 5, 8, and 11 are required to participate. Student score reports are scheduled to be reported in early fall of 2021.
For both tests, directions for testing start at the beginning of the school day. As always please encourage your child to get a good night’s sleep and to eat a healthy breakfast. Below you will find links with more information about the tests. These links are also on the DHHS website.
