Assessments Toolkit

This toolkit is intended to help superintendents communicate information about New York’s annual testing program to their school communities. The toolkit is completely optional and contains customizable materials such as a letter to parents and a PowerPoint presentation about the assessments. Superintendents are encouraged to check out these materials and use them if they would be an effective way to reach their parents and educators.
