SATEC receives community health and safety award April 2016

SATEC staff participated in a “Point of Distribution Drill” on Friday, April 15th during our in-service time.  This drill was organized and conducted by the Department of Health. Judy Ashley and Chad Spooner from the Department of Health presented us this this certificate of appreciation for our support and participation in this community emergency planning event.

SBAC Information:
SATEC students have begun the process of participating in the SBAC annual assessment. The SBAC assessment is given each spring to all students in grades 3-8. This assessment is completed online. There are three main components of the SBAC assessment in the areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and Math:

1) Computer Adaptive Tasks (CAT) - In this portion of the test students answer a series of multiple choice or extended response questions. Correct answers will increase the level of difficulty for future questions and incorrect responses will decrease the level of difficulty for future questions until an accurate level of the student’s performance can be determined.

2) Classroom Activity - In this portion of the assessment the students will participate in a short (30 min) classroom activity. Students will use the information that they get from this lesson in the Performance Task.

3) Performance Task - It is in this section of the testing that students respond in a more complex way to a common topic. Often times the performance task will require longer constructed responses that use the background information from the Classroom Activity. Typically, in math students will be asked to solve real world problems and in ELA students will be asked to blend research with writing to persuade or inform/explain a position or point of view.

What happens when you hand a group of 6th graders two iPads and two robots (still in their boxes) and tell them to see what they can figure out? Thanks to the Vermont Robot Rodeo we got to find out!
