Proficiency Exam Prep – 2013
The week of March 4, 2013, is crucial for high school students in the Clark County School District. It is when high schools will administer the High School Proficiency Exams (HSPE) in mathematics, writing, reading and science.
Students are strongly encouraged to prepare for the exams and attend school on the test days. Seniors who have already passed the HSPE in mathematics, writing, reading and science, along with all ninth, tenth and eleventh grade students, should check their school’s testing schedule and attendance requirements.
Seniors who still need to pass any portion of the exam – mathematics, writing, reading or science – are advised to be at school on those test day(s) and ready to go.
CCSD’s HSPE campaign will include posters in schools and a ParentLink telephone message.
Students can prepare for the math portion of the test by utilizing a tutorial at mathtest.ccsd.net.
