Science MCAS Prep & Upcoming MCAS Dates

Essex Tech Sophmore Families:

Although we look forward to the coming of spring, it is also a time that all sophomores need to be preparing for the high-stakes testing of the MCAS exams.  The schedule for the testing is as follows:

  • May 16                       Mathematics Session 1
  • May 17                       Mathematics Session 2
  • June 5                        Science/Biology Session 1
  • June 6                        Science/Biology Session 2

The schedule as you can see is intense.  I urge you as parents/guardians to make sure your child is prepared with plenty of rest during that period of time, breakfast each day and good attendance.  Because the schedule is so rigorous, students should be here each day so making up a test does not intensify the demands of the schedules.

A Science MCAS preparation class will be offered to students beginning the week ofApril 24, 2017.  The class will be offered two days a week on Monday and Thursday from2:30-4:00 p.m. for 6 weeks.  If you would like your child to attend, complete the form below and return it to the high school office no later than April 14, 2017.

Thank you,
