2020 MAP Testing Information

The Measures of Academic Progress, known as MAP testing, begins October 6 at HMS. Testing will be conducted virtually and teachers will communicate to students which group number they are assigned. Below you will find several informative resources from the school. 

**Since testing groups can be no larger than 9 students, students may have asynchronous learning during many days of the testing window. The size of the testing groups is a countywide mandate that is not controlled at the school level.

The Henderson Middle PTSA Page has general school and PTSA announcements.  
The Henderson Middle Parents Group is a closed group (request to be added and provide your student's name). This is a great place to ask specific questions about school that are then generally answered by other parents in the know.
