2015 Technology Bond Information

Information Regarding The Upcoming 8th Grade NAEP Test
We are pleased to inform you that O.W. Best has been selected to represent schools across the nation by participating in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The results of NAEP are released as The Nation's Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers and the public.

At O.W. Best, the NAEP assessment will be given to select 8th graders on Thursday, February 5, 2015. If your child was selected to take an assessment, you will be notified by mail and your student will be notified in school. It will take about 90 minutes for most students to participate in the assessment. If you do not want your child to participate in the NAEP, please contact O.W. Best's Principal Mr. Z. in writing by Friday, January 30, 2015.
There is no need to study in preparation for NAEP. We request that students get plenty of rest the night before the assessment and arrive to school on time that day.
