Dear Parent/Guardian 


Over the next few weeks, the South Huntington school district will be administering required Common Core field tests. A schedule of the dates, buildings and subject areas are listed below. We reached out to the New York State Education Department for guidance and/or relief/flexibility on these field assessments and have been advised by the Director of the Office of State Assessment that “All schools that administer State operational tests are also required to administer the field tests associated with them.” Field tests are used to “ensure the validity and reliability of New York State operational tests” and are not graded or used in any other capacity. 


If you have any questions or concerns regarding the field tests, please contact your child’s principal.  Those who have previously communicated with their Building Principals and/or District Office regarding their family testing preference do not need to resubmit documentation.


Thank you. 


The District and Building Administrative Team
