Testing Calendar for upcoming assessments



Dear Parents and Guardians,

Listed below are the upcoming assessment dates for students who attend Sanders Unified Schools. Please have your child in school during these dates.

AIMS math, reading, and writing have been cancelled as a state required assessment. AIMS Science is still required for students in 4th, 8th and 10th grade.  Spring AZELLA testing is currently taking place at all three schools.


· 3rd Quarter Benchmark Testing will be March 2 – March 13

· AIMS Science for 4th, 8th and 10th grade will be April 13 - April 17

· AzMERIT for Writing will be April 13 - April 17

· AzMERIT for 3rd – 8th grade English and Math will be April 27 – May 6

· AzMERIT for 9th – 11th grade end of course assessment: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and English will be April 27 – May 6

· Galileo IE Assessment for all grades K-12 will be May 11 – May 20

· DIBELS K-5th grade will be May 4 – May 8


AIMS, AzMERIT, and DIBELS are state required assessments


As the state legislature reviews the common core and the required assessments, changes are likely to take place related to the AzMERIT.  SUSD is not sure what the state legislature will do in the upcoming months.  Please be patient as SUSD moves forward with developing a strong curriculum and assessment process for SUSD students.
