PIV Replaces Home Access Center New

PIV is an acronym for Pinnacle Internet Viewer. PIV access for student grades, attendance, and assignments will not be available until early October each year. Parents or guardians will be sent a login for their student’s information. Students will also be given a login for their access.   
It is very important that parents/guardians make sure that the school has their current email address.  If a password is forgotten, the only way to retrieve it is via the email that is on file in the office.  Contact your school office if you need assistance with PIV.

Smarter Balanced Assessments

Beginning last spring, Smarter Balanced testing replaced existing assessment tests in English and math.   They offer significant improvements over previous state tests, including writing at every grade, new question types, and performance tasks that ask students to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world problems.  Unlike the previous, multiple-choice-only tests, the new assessments include question formats that allow students to demonstrate a broader set of skills, like critical thinking, problem-solving, and analytical writing.
