Dear Parents and Guardians:
Over the next two weeks, starting May 17th-27th, your student will take the state standardized test. This year testing will look different because of our current hybrid model. This means there are many additional components that need to be considered before we can begin testing.
The state test can only be taken on a personal laptop or a TLC provided Chromebook.
- If your student has a personal laptop/computer then they must download the AIR Secure Test App to be able to access and sign in to their state tests. (Link to download App for your students specific computer https://ca.portal.cambiumast.com/)
- Videos for downloading the AIR Secure Test App :

- If your student has a personal Chromebook then they will not be able to access the state test and will need to either use a different computer OR check out a TLC Chromebook on Friday May 14th between 8-12pm for 5th/6th grade students (to be ready to test on May 17th) All chromebooks checked out for testing must be returned to the front office by Thursday May 20th at 4:30pm. 7th/8th grade students in need of a chromebook may check out (on a first come first serve basis) chromebooks for testing on Friday May 21st between 8am-12pm (first come first serve). We have an extremely limited supply of additional chromebooks and so we implore you to consider all options in your household before opting to check one out from the office. If you do not have any other options then you must email email@example.com to let us know that you plan to check out a TLC chromebook. Chromebooks will be in the front office for check out on a first come first served basis.
- If your student already has a TLC Chromebook then they will be able to access the test using the preloaded AIR Secure Test app (can be found on the login page on the bottom left under APPS)
5th and 6th grade students will be testing during the week of May 17th and 7th and 8th graders will be testing the following week, the week of May 24th. I will be checking daily to make sure all students have accessed, begun, and then completed each component of the test. We have a small window of time between now and June to make sure all students have completed their requisite tests; parents/guardians of any students who have failed to begin/complete their tests will be contacted to ensure that their student has access.
State testing is an important part of our school year and we appreciate your help in making sure that every student is able to test successfully.
For any questions or concerns please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
