Despite connectivity issues, Marcellus students able to take ELA tests

April 11, 2018 -- A message from Superintendent of Schools Michelle L. Brantner about technical difficulties on the first day of Grade 3-8 state testing:

Today marked the beginning of this year's English language arts (ELA) and math testing in grades 3-8. Because the New York State Education Department (NYSED) has encouraged school districts to try computer-based testing, a record number of students across the state logged on simultaneously to complete tests. Unfortunately, the high traffic put some strain on a connectivity hub outside of our region that affected Marcellus students, as well. 

Despite some delays, Marcellus was able to administer the tests today as planned.

Please know how proud we all are of our students in grades 3-8 and their resilience when faced with frustration. Their response is a testament to our families and community as a whole supporting and teaching them. We are strongly advocating for our students at the state level, and I have no doubt that NYSED takes our concerns seriously and will respond in a way that protects our students. I will continue to update you as we learn more. Thank you for raising great kids and for supporting our work with them.
