Dear Families,

This spring, Wellesley High School will administer the MCAS English Language Arts (ELA) and Math exams using a computer-based format. While this is new for the high school, our current sophomores have taken the computer-based format in 8th grade.

As a parent/guardian, you should be aware of the following:

  1. An MCAS Infrastructure Trial will take place on Thursday, March 7th at 7:30-8:29 (Block 1).  This is mandatory for all sophomores.

  2. Students must download and install Testnav by March 4th.

  3. Room assignments for students will be posted outside each house office by Monday, March 4th.

In order to properly prepare for the State Mandated MCAS test, we have scheduled the above critical Infrastructure Trial to make sure our network and testing technology are ready for the actual test which is a graduation requirement. It is important that we test with all students to ensure a smooth and optimal environment for the actual tests for your student(s): ELA on March 26-27 and Math on May 23-24.

Our sincere thanks for your assistance in this important effort.
