RE: Texas elementary-to Kimberly

We test with the rest of Texas in Mid April this year - they are moving
the test to late April early May it is suppose to be a final of sorts.
Texas used to test in September, but they lost so much over the summer
that that was impractical. Extended day was taught by the TAAS
coordinator and regular classroom teachers (3-5th grade). If you had
kids that needed extended day you pretty much taught extended day, but
not your kids. They switched around within the same grade level.

Thanks, Kimberly, this helps to clarify. We test here in September.
When do
your schools test? I apologize for all these questions, which may seem
redundant to you.
I am just trying to get a clear picture of how this operates. Could you
me who taught the extended day? I promise I won't ask any more
after that.
My mind is a bit like peanut butter at this time of the year...
Thanks, Betsy
