State Testing

One of the requirements of our personalized, distance education program is to participate in all mandatory State tests (hosted on a local computer proctored by a school representative).  All students will be required to take the corresponding tests listed below. All State tests are administered by Provo eSchool, Tooele Blue Peak Online, or Gateway Preparatory Academy.  Also, as required by State Law, a SAGE opt-out form for each school of enrollment is available in InfoCenter.
