MAP Scores

Dear Parent or Guardian,

 

Results from the 2019 spring Missouri Assessment Program tests are now available and we want you to know how proud we are of your children. Missouri teachers and other stakeholders developed the Missouri Learning Standards that were adopted in spring 2016. The new standards set a higher bar, which is reflected in more challenging, teacher-developed state assessments. In the long term, achievement is expected to increase. Our students and teachers have worked hard to reach the standards that these assessments cover. High academic standards will prepare Missouri students for success both in school and beyond. 

 

MAP and EOC tests are given at the end of each year or course to gauge how well students are reaching Missouri Learning Standards. Assessment – at the local and state level – is one of the ways we ensure we are meeting your child’s needs. We are committed to providing all children in our district with opportunities for success, and we look forward to working through the remainder of this school year with you and your student.

 

ELEM MAP scores will be distributed at Fall Parent Teacher Conferences. If you would like your child’s MAP score prior to this, please let your child’s teacher know. 

 

Sincerely, 

 

Jason Adams

MRH Parents as Teachers is continuing to enroll families in the program. PAT is a program that equips parents with knowledge and resources to prepare their children, from prenatal to kindergarten entry, for a stronger start in life and greater success in school. PAT is offered free of charge to families living in the MRH School District. Participants in PAT have access to yearly developmental screenings and referrals or resources as needed, receive monthly updates from our e-newsletter, can attend free monthly group connections and events, can request handouts on developmental topics, and may be able to arrange home visits with a PAT educator.

 

For more information or to enroll in the program, please email PAT Parent Educators Sara and Colleen at parentsasteachers@mrhschools.net or call 314-256-4562.
