Parents/guardians are important partners in a child’s education. MPS has developed several guides to help families support their children. We encourage parents and guardians to review these items to better understand what students are learning and how assessments (tests) help measure student progress.
The Grade-by-Grade Parent Guides provide a detailed look at what students are learning in reading, writing, and mathematics at each grade level. Tips are included to help support a child’s learning at home.
Understanding Your Child’s Assessments is designed to help families understand the types of assessments (tests) used in MPS and how they are used to improve student achievement. The guide includes ways to communicate with your child’s teacher about assessments and how families can support their student during assessment time.
