Important IREAD/ISTEP+ Information  
Students in grades 3-5 will participate in ISTEP+ and third grade students will also participate in IREAD testing in the spring.  Please be aware that the ISTEP+ testing session has been split into two testing sessions; one in March and one in April.  The IREAD testing will be held in March over three days.  Students need to be present each day, but attendance is especially important during the testing sessions.  Please make all doctor and dentist appointments on dates that are not testing dates.  Thank you!

ISTEP+/IREAD Test Results:
IREAD test results will be sent to the school in April.  The school will advise the parents of the results.

Parents will be able to access ISTEP+ results by visiting the ISTEP+ Parent Network on the internet.  Parents will receive their login information from the WCSC once test scores have been delivered to the schools.  Once parents receive this information, they can go to the website listed in the information to view the results of their children in grades 3-8.  All parents will receive paper copies of their child’s ISTEP+/IREAD scores also.
