The next library books/materials pickup is Wednesday, October 7 from 4:30 - 5:30 at your child’s home school. Look for more information from your child’s teacher(s) regarding what materials will be included in the pickup. Your child can also return library books, original iPad cases (5th and 6th grade) or other materials on October 7.

MAP Assessment Information for 2nd - 5th Grade
RLA students in 2nd - 5th grade will be taking the MAP assessment September 29 - October 23. While we’ve been administering MAP in our district for many years, this is the first time we’ll administer MAP remotely so we wanted to provide some insights to you as RLA parents. A computer-adaptive test like MAP adjusts the difficulty of questions as a child works on the test. Most students will get about half the questions right and half wrong. This means that your child may see questions about content he or she has not seen before or been taught. Please know this is supposed to happen with MAP. As a parent, it might be hard to watch your child get answers wrong on a test, but to accurately reflect your child’s strengths and to help your child’s teacher know what he/she needs to learn next, please don’t step in and help your child with answers. The most important thing you can do is ask your children to do their best and reassure them that there are questions about concepts they haven’t learned yet, but will soon!
