    State-Wide CMAS Testing to begin April 8th, 2024

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    That time of year is here again to begin preparing for the annual statewide assessments.  

    Our 3rd through 12th  graders soon will begin taking the statewide assessments that are aligned to the Colorado Academic Standards and measure real-world skills like problem-solving, communicating, and thinking critically, all essential for success in college and careers. These assessments, examine students’ knowledge in English language arts, math, science and social studies and will be given over a three-week window between April 8 and April 26.

    ** **

    Colorado ninth-graders will take the PSAT 10 as the statewide assessment in English Language Arts and Math. Colorado’s 10th-grade students will continue to take the PSAT 10, and 11th-grade students will take the SAT and Science CMAS.

    The overall goal is to ensure all students are prepared for college or careers when they leave high school. These tests provide a snapshot of how our students are progressing toward that goal and how our teachers can better help them achieve it. It is also important to remember these tests are just one measure of a student’s progress, but they are the only common measurement that helps parents understand how their children are doing compared with their peers around the state, how the school is performing and how the district is doing overall. Data from the tests also helps policymakers identify what schools or districts need more help and which ones should be celebrated for their successes.

    But the information is only good if students take the assessments. In recent years, the state has worked to reduce the number and length of tests for our students in an effort to answer the call from parents who were unhappy about the overload.

    State law requires local school boards to develop a policy allowing parents to excuse their students from participating in 1 or more state assessments. Thus, districts cannot impose negative consequences on students or parents if a parent excuses their student from an assessment. Likewise, districts cannot impose burdens on students to discourage them from participating in an assessment. However, Huerfano RE-1 encourages parents to have all children take the assessments. We need to meet the 95% threshold of students testing in order to avoid any decline in our schools or district accreditation ratings.

    *** ***

    We strongly encourage all students to take all tests so that we may have an accurate, positive outcome for all.  Opt-out forms are available at all schools via the school secretary/Principal. Prior to completing an opt-out form it is necessary to consult with the school Principal.**

    ***Opt-Out Form can be found here: ***


    Parents, please consider that your child/children:

    • Are well rested by getting enough sleep so as to be alert and at their physical/mental best to test
    • Are nutritionally sound by eating a proper breakfast and lunch at school or at home
    • Are motivated to make every effort to do their very best

    I thank you for considering that all children take all assessments and that all children attempt to do their very best. Good luck to all!
