Dear Parent or Guardian:
Vicksburg Warren School District receives funds for education programs that are part of the Elementary and Secondary Act (ESEA) as amended (2015).
This law requires that all states adopt challenging academic standards and tests based on those standards. There
must be at least three levels of scores for students who take these tests. This includes tests in mathematics, reading, or language arts, science, and any other subject chosen by a state. States are required to administer an English
language proficiency tests for students who are English learners. Furthermore, states must administer an alternate tests for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
These academic tests provide important information that help teachers, the district, and the state of Mississippi identify students’ strengths and weaknesses. Test results and other information are used to improve academic and language instruction for students. These tests are also used to identify schools that may be in need of extra support to improve student achievement. It is the goal of the district to have all students participate in state and local testing.
You have the right to request any state or district policy about these academic tests required by the ESEA.
If have any questions about the state testing, district testing, or both, please contact:
