Nonpublic Second-graders Must Preregister by Dec. 2 for InView Testing to Evaluate Placement for Magnet.TAD for 2016-17
Second-grade students not currently enrolled in Wicomico County Public Schools whose parents/guardians would like them to be considered for the Magnet Program and the Thinking and Doing (TAD) Program for the 2016-2017 school year must register by Dec. 2 for the student to participate in the Dec. 9-10 InView, an assessment of cognitive abilities that includes verbal reasoning, sequences, analogies, and quantitative reasoning.
Current WCPS second-graders will also take the InView assessment on Dec. 9-10, in their schools. Prospective WCPS students must participate in the InView assessment on the same dates as current WCPS students to be considered for the Magnet Program for the upcoming school year. This assessment opportunity will not be offered at any other time during the 2015-2016 school year.
The assessment results will help the school system determine each second-grade student’s appropriate academic placement within the school system, including a student’s potential placement in the Magnet Program for the upcoming school year as they matriculate into third grade. The Magnet Program is an accelerated learning program for students in grades 3 through 5. The results will also be used to determine students’ eligibility for the Thinking and Doing (TAD) gifted and talented program.
InView Magnet Program assessment for nonpublic school second-graders will be on two days (students participate both days) at East Salisbury Elementary School, 1201 Old Ocean City Road, Salisbury:
Day 1: 9-10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9
Day 2: 9-10:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 10
Families interested in having their child participate in this assessment must register with Mrs. Georgia Hearne in the Department of Instruction by 4 p.m. on Dec. 2. Please call 410-677-4496 to register for the InView assessment.
A letter explaining the InView assessment has been mailed to all Wicomico County private schools. The information is posted on the Wicomico County Public Schools website (www.wcboe.org), and will be shared through local media.
