Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) Testing
Alaska will assess students in English language arts and math in grades 3 through 10 in the spring, as it has done for many years. But there are some improvements. Before, students took separate tests in reading, writing, and math for three days in a row. Combined, the tests had up to 185 questions. The tests were untimed but, typically, students spent two or more hours on each test.
Now, students will take just two tests: English language arts and math, with a combined total of 140 questions. The tests are still untimed. But schools don’t have to give the tests on back-to-back days. Also, schools can break up each test into shorter sections and give students just one section a day. If schools do that, students might answer 15 or 25 questions in a sitting.
Students with disabilities may receive accommodations as determined by the student’s team. Students with severe cognitive disabilities may be eligible for an alternate test.

FNSBSD Volunteer Packet
Thank you for volunteering! This year we ask that all field trip chaperones and regular volunteers complete a FNSBSD volunteer packet and background check. There is no cost for the background check. You may download a copy of the packet here, or pick one up in the office. Do not take the packet to the police department. Turn the packet in at Barnette's main office, or to the School District's HR department on 5th Avenue.
