The following are suggestions to help your child be successful on these assessments:

Please schedule appointments for your child on non-testing days.
See that your child gets a good night’s rest each night prior to testing.
Encourage your child to eat breakfast either at home and/or school.
See that your child is on time each morning of testing.
Encourage your child to do the BEST work possible.
Encourage your child to read and check over the test.
Praise your child for a job well done.

Cell phones or other electronic devices are not allowed during testing. Please see the policy below regarding electronic devices.

The State Department of Education Test Security Guidelines for SC READY and SC PASS states that students may not have any electronic or other device with them that can be used for communicating, timing, or imaging. These devices include, but are not limited to, cell phones, pagers, beepers, headphones, stopwatches, electronic translators, hand-held devices, PDA’s, or any electronic imaging or photographic device. For Eastside Elementary School to be following state testing regulations; teachers will be collecting all cell phones/electronic devices until the testing session is over. Therefore, all students are encouraged to leave their cell phones, smart watches, Kindles, Nooks, iPods and other electronic devices at home during the testing days.

It is critical that we have ALL students present and on time each day. Please assist us with this by not scheduling any appointments for your child during this time. If you have any questions concerning this test, please call Mrs. Derrick at 864-938-4935 or email at
