Recent Announcements

  • Update (2/25): Chrome OS 72.0.3626.177 is now supported. Original Post (2/13)  Urgent: Please delay any device updates to Chrome v72 on Chromebooks as it will create an issue for students when logging into their testing session and they will be unable to start/resume their test. As a reminder, automatic operating system updates should be deactivated on all devices. AIR is working closely with Google to address the issue in v72 that prevents AIR from supporting it for online testing.

  • The Smarter Balanced and HSA Science Parent Information Booklets (PIBs) are currently available in English and 14 translated languages and can be found in the General Information folder on the Resources page. Printed PIBs will be shipped and delivered to each school the week of January 14th. Each student's home language in Infinite Campus has been used to determine whether a student will receive either an English PIB or a translated PIB in the home language indicated by their family. Please make sure the students receive either the English or translated PIB that they need. If your school does not receive their shipment of PIBs by Wednesday, January 23rd, please contact the Help Desk.
