Students must demonstrate evidence of proficiency in 10 different expectations. Students must scan and enter more than 30 items into their portfolios.
The NECAP tests are rigorous assessments mandated by the Rhode Island Department of Education to assess students in grades 3 – 8 and also in grade 11. The NECAP tests measure student achievement in the areas of Reading, Writing , Math and most recently Science. Each year, the NECAP tests are usually scheduled during the month of October.

than the minimum achievement
level will not be awarded a diploma

are closely monitored and are given this intervention during skills classes at
the middle school and during advisory blocks at the high school.
