MGRSD is currently recruiting to fill open positions as we close out this school year and prepare for the 2019-2020 year to come. Please click here to visit our Human Resources page for more information.
MCAS testing for grades 7 and 8 is scheduled to start next week. Teachers have been working with students to prepare them for both the content and the format, which will be computer-based this year once again. Each test session's length varies, but students can anticipate about 2 to 2.5 hours with time for administration instructions. If students finish early, they have the chance to read a book; their English teachers will be encouraging them to bring an independently selected book. MCAS exams are obviously not the exclusive measure of a student's academic talents, but they are one indicator, and we encourage students to do their best work. A good night's sleep and healthy breakfast go a long way towards doing one's best work.
The testing schedules are as follows:
7th Grade ELA - Tues 4/30 + Wed 5/1 Math - Tues 5/7 + Wed 5/8
