** Grades 3-5 Social Studies Pause: Due to upcoming changes to social studies standards in grades 3-5, the department will pause on state social studies assessments in these grades in 2018-19. In school year 2019-20, significant changes will occur in the social studies academic standards in grades 3-5. The department recognizes that transitioning to significantly new standards requires ample planning. This pause provides testing relief in the early grades while also affording the field flexibility to phase-in and prepare to implement the new standards in these grades.
