Fifth Grade Parents
Message from Mrs. Wood, Guidance Counselor-
The 2015-2016 Secondary Student Curriculum Guide is a booklet that explains all of our middle school and high school classes as well as other curriculum-related topics. The school system is offering these booklets electronically this year. It is available on the Virginia Beach City Public Schools internet site at:
A Look at Assessment
To accurately measure student mastery of core knowledge and demonstration of 21st century skills, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) uses a variety of assessments including, but not limited to, performance tasks, multiple-choice tests and essays. Many of the assessments students take are required by the state and federal departments of education to measure student progress toward performance benchmarks. Local assessments (locally- and externally-developed) are used to monitor student progress, differentiate instruction, identify students for participation in specific programs and measure students' mastery of 21st century skills.
To help parents better understand the various tests students take, their purpose and why they are important, the school division has developed this informational brochure.
