Parent Brochures:     

SDE has developed Parent Brochures to accompany the Individual Student Reports that schools send home. Tailored by grade (for example, third grade test takers entering fourth grade, fourth grade test takers entering fifth grade, etc.), each brochure ties the previous year's standards with the upcoming year's standards and provides useful tools and strategies for parents to assist their child at home.
