Please see below for important information about the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Practice Tests that are available online for grades three through eight and grade eleven. Practice tests are available in English-language arts (ELA) and mathematics.
The State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson encourages students, educators, and parents to try out the Smarter Balanced Practice Tests to familiarize themselves with the new generation of computer-based assessments students will take starting in the 2014-15 school year.
More information regarding the Practice Tests can be found on the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium web site at: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/pilot-test/ .

Attention 6th grade parents

Safe and Civil
There are several new and exciting changes happening at Tincher. We were invited to participate in the district’s Safe And Civil School program. This 3-year program focuses on developing policies and procedures to ensure a safe and orderly campus. As part of the changes we are implementing, the new Tincher Token program is being rolled out. The new tokens feature our Guidelines For Success.
The Guidelines For Success (shown right) are included as part of our daily announcements following the Pledge of Allegiance. These guidelines are an important part of the school culture.
The improvements also include the “Start on Time” program for Middle School which was introduced last week. Start on Time is designed to increase instructional time and minimize interruptions. A ‘sweep’ team will issue late slips to MS students who are not in class by the end of the 4-minute passing period. Automatic phone calls will be made for each period they are tardy. On-line attendance is being piloted by Tincher for Middle School, so please assist us by sending notes for any absence. Be sure to include student’s name, the date and reason for the absence.
In addition to revising the school-wide referral program, we have introduced ‘blue slips’ for elementary students. Blue slips will be issued for playground issues/concerns. Thank you for your support.
