      During testing, students are not allowed to have in their possession any electronic device (including smart watches) that can be used for communicating, timing, creating images, or storing images.  These devices will be collected by the students’ test administrator and returned after each test session is completed.  

      We are proud of the achievement of our students and know that they will do very well.  Thank you for your support!
