FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

RALLY FOR CSAP SUCCESS

S-U-C-C-E-S-S….is how you will hear our Aurora students spelling out their success as they prepare to take the CSAP test.

Districtwide pep rallies kick off CSAP testing to get kids excited about their futures, inspire success and answer student questions and concerns.

APS Superintendent John Barry is heading up CSAP rallies in all Aurora secondary schools, coaching kids on what this test means to their future, their school and their district. 
 
Visit, www.aps.k12.co/us/supt/podcasts/csap, to see Barry’s personal podcast message to elementary students on what the CSAP means to them.

APS uses CSAP results to measure how our students are learning according to state content standards.  With these results, APS teaching staff can identify the needs of each student.  

CSAP testing began Feb. 15 for some schools.
