State Mandated Testing

Dear Pine Lane Families,

I wanted to reach out to you all as we have begun to prepare for state testing for this spring. Beginning in March our 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students will be taking the Colorado Measure of Academic Success (CMAS) along with all of the other students in Colorado. This assessment replaces PARCC. It will measure the Colorado Academic Standards as taught in all classrooms. This is a wonderful time for students to really demonstrate some of the amazing learning they have gained this year here at Pine Lane.

  • 3rd-6th grades - CMAS (English Language Arts & Math)

  • 5th Grade only - CMAS (Science)

As always, please try and avoid scheduling appointments or planning trips during these times. Testing does begin the week following Spring Break. If you do have something that cannot be changed, please contact Candice Laviaguerre, Assistant Principal at 303-387-8375 or Additionally, we HIGHLY encourage participation, but we respect our parents’ decision regarding whether their children participate in this assessment process. If you choose to excuse your child, you will be able to send him/her to school those days. Please see our website under the State Mandated Assessment Tab for additional resources regarding this process. Thank you for your continued partnership!
