State Testing
Test Schedules for the 2019-2020 School Year

Updated January 23rd with HS Late Start Dates


State testing takes place within designated "test windows" that are determined by the state.  Specific test dates will vary by school because schools are usually permitted to choose their own test dates.

An exception to this in our district would be High School tests that take place in the spring at our four comprehensive high schools, which usually occur on predetermined “late start days.”

On a “late start day” high school students who are testing will begin testing at the normal school start time and classes are scheduled to start later (usually around 10am, although you should confirm the specific times with your student’s school).

The following are the district's overall test windows for 2019-2020 SBA and WCAS:

  • Grade 3 through HS SBA (English Language Arts and Math)...March 26-June 5
  • Grades 5 and 8 WCAS (Science)...April 13-June 5
  • Grade 11 WCAS (Science)...May 4-June 5

The following are the late start dates for the four comprehensive high schools:

  • SBA ELA and Math - May 26 through May 29 (check with your school if you need to know which tests - ELA or Math - will happen on which dates)
  • WCAS (Science) - June 1

The following are additional test windows:

  • Grades 3 through HS WA-AIM (alternate test to SBA and WCAS for special education students)...October 14-April 13
  • Grades K-12 ELPA and WIDA (English Learner assessments)...February 3-March 27
