Document, which will be updated annually, outlines all assessments & screeners used with WPS K-12 students
Wahoo Public Schools has been working to create an Assessment Brochure which outlines the various assessments/screeners being conducted at our elementary, middle school and high school buildings.
We hope that providing such information to you in this format will increase transparency with regards to our current assessment system and their purpose. In future years, this document will be emailed to all district families at the beginning of the school year.
If you ever have questions about anything happening within Wahoo Public Schools, please don't hesitate to reach out to your student's classroom teacher or to your building principal.
