KINDERGARTEN PRE-ASSESSMENT

In order to make the best educational decisions regarding your child’s education, all Madison City Schools are requesting kindergarten students to visit the school during the summer in order to complete an assessment. This assessment will be a valuable tool in for your child’s teacher.

 

We will administer the test the 17th and 18th of July. The testing will be done at Rainbow by one of our teachers. The results of the assessment will be shared with you at the first parent/teacher conference for the school year.

 

The test, covering early literacy and numeracy skills will take approximately 20 minutes. Please use the following link to register your child for the assessment.
