State Mandated Testing Information

CMAS Information
Below you will find a detailed schedule of the upcoming CMAS assessment for your child. This is the state mandated assessment of reading, writing and math for all 3rd-6th graders in our building, as well as science for our 5th graders. It is essential that your child attends school on the days he/she is testing. We are on a tight schedule and have limited time for make-ups. Of course, if your child is sick, please keep him/her home. If you have any questions, please email Sarah Harwood at  sarah.harwood@dcsdk12.org .
Excusal Information:
We respect our parents decision regarding whether your child participates in these tests. If you choose to excuse your child from testing, we need to know in advance. If you would like to excuse your child, please fill out the Stone Mountain excusal form no later than December 15th. YOU MUST FILL OUT THE STONE MOUNTAIN EXCUSAL FORM for each test that you wish to excuse your child from.  If you have students at other DCSD schools, you may fill out their excusal forms at the same time. We request that you fill out the excusal process by December 15th so that we may put all of the correct information into the testing platform.
This year, the excusal process in online using your Parent Portal information. Please follow the step by step directions (with visuals) below.
Click on the words "Excusal Form" above if you would like to excuse your child/children.  You must mark each assessment that you wish to excuse your child from taking.  You will receive a confirmation email upon completion.
