What is happening at Robert Gray?
Smarter Balanced Assessment System-
This year, students in grades 3-8 and 11 will be taking the Smarter Balanced Assessments in English/Language Arts and Math. This is the first year our students will participate in these assessments that are aligned to the Common Core standards.

RGE teachers will be working with students throughout the year to give them experience with the content, the process and the format of these tests that will be taken online in the spring.
