• assess how well JSD students meet the State's performance standards.
• support instruction in JSD classrooms.
• guide school improvement plans.
The Assessment Office provides means by which school administrators, teachers, students, and parents have immediate access to student achievement data.
The office also generates a variety of reports that fulfill federal, state, and district mandates and provide data and research assistance to various entities.
