Smarter Balanced and HSA Science Parent Letters 2022-2023Aug 30, 2022
The Parent Letters are participation and non-participation letters that schools may send to parents along with the Parent Information Booklet about the grades 3-8 and 11 Smarter Balanced ELA/Literacy and Mathematics Assessments and the grades 5 and 8 Hawaii State Science (NGSS) Assessments. Parent Letters are provided in English and 14 translated languages.
These parent letters are Word documents that can be edited by school level staff members. Edits may include a school’s testing schedule, principal’s signature, and school phone number. If a student is included in two populations, e.g., IDEA-eligible and Home/Hospital Instruction, a customized parent letter can be created by inserting the appropriate text from the parent letter for each of these two populations.
