Dear Parent or Guardian:

For the past several years Dare County Schools has developed and administered benchmark tests to gauge student learning. Benchmark tests provide information about what each student has learned and help teachers plan instruction accordingly.

During the 2016-2017 school year Dare County Schools will administer the North Carolina Check-Ins for grade 5 Math instead of the local benchmark tests. All other grades 3-5 students will take the regular benchmark tests.

The North Carolina Check-Ins for grade 5 Math test dates are:

Once during November 1-4, 2016

Once in January 2017

Once in March 2017

There is no need for your child to study in preparation for this test. Your child’s grades or progress in school will not be affected in any way by participating.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Blackstock at 473-2742.


Steve Blackstock,
