Regular attendanace has a direct influence on student achievement. That's why it is important that students be in school every day, and especially on test days. Attendance on test days gives students an opportunity to show what they know, providing teachers with important information about each student's learning. Below is a link to test dates when Duluth students will take national, state, and system assessments during the school year. While these days have been set aside for test administration, it is imporant to remember that only a small amount of time - ranging from as little as one hour up to three hours - is actually spent testing on a given day. Please use this list for reference when planning appointments or time away from school.
The GCPS test dates and DHS Local Test Administration Dates for the 2017-2018 school year are listed in the file linked below.
