MAP Testing starts next week
Please help us support your student's achievement on the upcoming MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) test, to be given between September 8 and September 19. Not only will this test act as an effective tool to measure your student's growth, but it may also predict success on the STAAR exam. In addition, MAP scores are used to help determine gifted and talented program eligibility (when accompanied by the appropriate nomination materials and additional test results). Ensure that students have a good night's rest, a healthy breakfast, and come to school ready to focus. Let's work together to help create a road MAP to your student's success!

Teachers, parents and others who know the student well may nominate a student during this period. Please fill out and submit the attached forms to your campus GT coach.
