SC Ready testing must be administered to students in grades 3 through 8.  SC Ready will test writing, reading and mathematics. 

In addition to SC Ready, students in grades 4-8 will take the SCPASS in science and/or social studies.

These assessments will give important information that will allow us to determine not only how your students are progressing at their current grade level, but how they are progressing toward a future for college and career readiness. Also, the assessment will help your student's teachers to see where he/she is being successful and where he/she needs extra help. 

Below is the schedule for our district's testing.  It is very important for all students to be at school and on time.  Missed tests will have to be made up. 

Please help us make sure your child feels confident and comfortable as he/she takes the SC READY/SC PASS.

Be sure your child goes to bed early, gets a good night's sleep, eats a good breakfast, and arrives at school on time (in class by 7:50 & ready to begin).  All testing will begin by 8:15.

*Please note that students are not allowed to have cell phones, tablets or any other electronic communication devices during the test.  Please make sure all devices are kept at home during testing. Thank you for all you do for our students.
