The Smarter Balanced Assessment score reports have been released by the state of Washington. The results are available on Family Access. To see student results, click on the Test Score tab and then go the GDWA Graduate of Washington tab. You will see the test scores for your child there.
Although the score report information is available in Family Access, if you would like a paper copy, we will have them available for pick up in the commons during our curriculum night, September 19th. If you cannot attend our curriculum night, students or parents may stop into our main office to request a score report from our Dean of Students, Mr. Gai.
