The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has selected May 10 to June 11 for testing students in grades three through five. Dates for students in grades six, seven, and eight are still to be determined. MCAS tests were canceled last year because of the sudden transition to remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Education Commissioner Jeff Riley said today he will work towards a phased approach for school-based learning with the goal of getting students back into classrooms by the end of this school year.
