Students in all three grades at Alden School will be taking MCAS
examinations during two testing windows. The first window lasts
from March 30th through April 14th; the second, from May 11th
through 28th. Dates when each grade will be testing are as follows:
Reading – March 30th; April 1st and 2nd;
Math – May 11th and 12th.
Composition – March 31st;
English/Language Arts – April 8th, 9th, and 13th;
Math – May 15th and 18th.
English/Language Arts – April 3rd, 6th, and 7th;
Math – May 13th and 14th;
Science – May 19th and 20th;
Social Studies – May 21st and 22nd.
These windows are narrow, and we need to ensure that all of our
students are tested during them. While we can give make-up
examinations – during the window – to students who were sick on
their regularly scheduled testing days, we need to keep such absences
to a minimum. We ask families not to take students from school – for
travel or for appointments – on days when they are scheduled to take
