Results of formative and summative assessments provide opportunities for accountability, reflection, recognition, and growth. All students will be held to the same high expectations and provided resources and support to ensure success based on their academic and social needs. In order to progress, the input and participation of all school community members is encouraged and valued through a collaborative process."
