Testing Information

Dear Parents/Guardians:

For the educational process to be efficient and effective, the Avonworth School District must collect and store certain information about students.  All school records are handled in strict compliance with Federal and State laws and regulations.

Care is taken to collect only necessary information on students. Identifying data, such as name, address, birth date, academic work completed, grade, standardized achievement test scores, attendance records, and parents' or guardians' names and addresses, are collected and kept permanently.  Other data such as health records, discipline records, background information, and aptitude test scores are maintained for varying periods depending upon the information's nature and its importance to the student's educational program.  If individualized tests are to be administered, the written consent of the parent or guardian is obtained.

Standardized tests are administered to students during the school year. The results will become a part of the student record. Standardized tests are listed below. Parents may contact the building principal or counselor if they wish to obtain additional information about the tests or discuss results.

Each child's school records are available for parental inspection at mutually agreeable times by contacting the building principal.
