Between April 9th and April 24th Laveen School District students will participate in state achievement testing.

Students in Grades three through eight will take Arizona’s Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching (AzMERIT). The AzMERIT test measures students’ skills in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. Students in Grades four and eight will continue to take the AIMS science test, in addition to AzMERIT. Students who are enrolled in an Algebra or Geometry class, will also take an AzMERIT end of course (EOC) assessment, in addition to their grade level ELA and mathematics assessments.

Please read the letter from our Academic Services Department for helpful testing tips and the testing schedule.
