Each year our 10th graders take the PLAN test, an
assessment designed to measure whether students are on track to being career
and college ready. This test traditionally has been given in the fall.
However, the State Department of Education has announced a program where
they will pay for this test, if test is given in the spring. As a result,
the 10th grade PLAN test will be given in the Auditorium on Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday March 12th-14th, first thing in the morning, with
1/3 of the 10th grade class testing each day. Testing will be concluded by
10:45 each day, and students will resume their normal schedule at that time.
KAMSC students will all test on Tuesday March 12, and will not be attending
their usual KAMSC classes. The staff at KAMSC is aware of the testing and
will not be expecting 10th graders that day. Parents, please have your KAMSC
student at school so that they can report to the auditorium lobby no later
than 7:45 am on Tuesday March 12. If you have any questions, please feel
free to contact our Test Coordinator Trish King at
