Suspension of all NSCAS Assessments
March 17, 2020
As the NSCAS testing window opens today (Monday, March 16th), we recognize there are many questions related to statewide summative assessment. Right now, our most important work is ensuring the health and safety of our students, our educators, and our communities.
We recognize the uncertainty facing school districts as decisions are made in response to COVID-19 developments. To that end, the NDE is suspending NSCAS testing for the week of March 16-20, 2020. Please postpone any NSCAS testing that scheduled for this week. This week, we will gather information, and we hope to have more information to share later this week.
We recognize this action will create additional questions. This is a rapidly changing situation, and we appreciate your patience as work through this together. If you have questions, please let our staff know. We are here to support you as you make the best decisions to keep you students, your staff, and your community healthy and safe.
