Parents

Dear Mustangs Parents and Guardians-
Manitou Springs School District 14 values the role that summative
assessments play in providing teachers with important diagnostic information
regarding student learning and growth. Thus, we have made the investment in the
Empower suite of assessments for our students in grades K-8. These assessments
align with the SAT tests that our secondary students take and provide important
information regarding how our students are progressing with their learning. This
information is used in our professional learning communities to help us address any
gaps we may have in our instruction and to see how we can both support and
challenge students with their learning.

We also are required to administer the state summative assessments each
spring. The state of Colorado continues to allow parents to refuse state testing. If
you choose to opt out of testing, we ask that you send us an email to notify us of
your decision. You may send your notice to the school assessment coordinator, Ms.
Maria Masone ([email protected]), by March 23, 2018. Please check with your
school for dates of upcoming testing.

Sincerely,


Chris Briggs-Hale
Principal Principal
Ute Pass Elementary School

Student Accident Insurance
Our school/district has selected the Student Insurance Plan from K&K Insurance Group to make reliable coverage available to parents. If you don’t have other insurance, this plan may be a resource to consider. Additionally, even if you have other coverage, this plan can help fill expensive “gaps” caused by deductible and co-pays. Coverage may be purchased at any time during the school year by visitingwww.studentinsurance-kk.com.
