 COMMUNITY INVITED TO PUBLIC SALE 
 Beaverton Rural Schools is hosting a public sale of used, out-dated equipment and furniture on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the vacant Beaverton Primary School at 127 Tonkin Street, Beaverton.  No advanced viewing or sales, please.
 
M-STEP ASSESSMENT
Beginning April 13th, students in grades 3-8 and 11 will be taking a new on-line state assessment. The Michigan Student Test of Education Progress (M-STEP) replaces the 44 year-old MEAP test. The M-STEP includes assessments designed by the Michigan Department of Education to effectively measure academic growth. English language arts (including reading, writing, and listening) and mathematics will be assessed in grades 3-8 and 11, science in grades 4, 7 and 11 and social studies in grades 5, 8 and 11.

The English language arts and mathematics assessments are comprised of Smarter Balanced content plus Michigan-developed, field-tested items that include an on-line test with interactive questions, a classroom activity and an on-line performance task. The science and social studies assessments are Michigan-developed, on-line, multiple-choice tests.  
 
The testing window has been set for each grade level and each school has determined the specifics for testing during the window. Your child’s school will communicate this specific information to you. Barring illness, it is very important that your child be in attendance in school during the testing window. There are several websites that may be helpful to you to provide additional information about the M-STEP:

We will continue to work closely with Michigan’s Department of Education throughout the new M-STEP assessment process. We are confident that Beaverton’s students will perform at a high level as they have in the past with MEAP assessments. If you have any questions regarding the M-STEP, please contact your building principal.
