 P-CEP TEST OUT OPPORTUNITIES

Please know that the test out dates for P-CEP classes have been adjusted to better accommodate the needs of students. There are now providing a winter and spring test out alternative. This is a change from our past spring and summer dates. Our goal is to provide students the possibility to pass test outs prior to the beginning of summer school. This will allow students who do not pass test-outs the potential to enroll in summer school. Test out opportunities are available for the following subject areas: World Language, Science, Math, Social Studies, English-Part I, English-Part II, Health, Physical Education, Swimming, Introduction to Art & Computer Applications. There is additional information regarding our test outs along with a full schedule for winter and spring posted on the P-CEP pages at: Testing Out of Future Courses.

This link will also allow provide a link to sign up for winter 2017 test outs beginning today. Please note the deadline to sign up for the winter test out is December 23, 2016.
