• Kingston Elementary School end-of-the-year state testing will occur on the last 20 days of school. The dates are posted below for students in grades 3-5. Students will test each morning beginning at 7:40am until they are done. The test is not timed but testing should last approximately one to two hours each day. It is important that parents get students to school on time and avoid making doctor appointments and scheduling other out-of-school functions during testing hours. 
    Brochures that contain resources regarding testing such as sample items, sample score reports, Score Report User’s Guide, and translations will be sent home with students over the next couple of weeks. Alternate formats for these resources are also available on the SCDE Website https://ed.sc.gov/tests/assessment-information/student-and-parent-resources/
    Electronic Device Policy
    Students may not be in possession of a cell phone or any other electronic device that can be used for communicating, recording, timing, creating images, or storing images during testing. This also includes smart watches and Bluetooth earbuds. Schools must have procedures in place for the collection of these devices prior to the beginning of testing. This does not apply to devices documented for use in a student’s IEP, 504 Plan or ILAP.
