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, Nebo – ALC, or Gateway Preparatory Academy.  Also, as required by State Law, an opt-out form for each school of enrollment is available in InfoCenter.
