Assessment Information

We understand that assessments in public schools today can be confusing and sometimes a little overwhelming for parents. On this page we have provided some basic information for parents to understand the assessments given in Lake County schools. Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s principal with any questions!

Due to the COVID-19 Virus, we will not be doing the CMAS, CoAlt or PSAT/SAT at this time.  As updates become available, we will keep you posted.
