A new test with fewer testing days welcomes the spring assessment season in Clinton schools.
Clinton Elementary School Principal Sacha Young explains the new tests replace the former PARCC tests and it will include fewer test days, which she says is welcome from all parties.
The tests mean a great deal to the district in terms of how the state grades the district. Young encourages parents to make sure students are getting a good amount of rest during this time.
Young says they try to encourage the students to do their best during the tests and hopes parents will do the same. She adds they will have an assembly that recognizes students that did well on the tests in years past to get the students excited about the testing.
