NOTE:  If a student is absent on a testing day, or arrives late to a test session, the student will have to make-up that test section. 
 
The students of Blackhawk School District have always performed very well on State exams, and we expect that our students will continue to perform at a high level! 

Some tips for successful test-taking!

Students should:
1)     Get a good night's sleep before each test!
2)     Eat a good breakfast each testing day!
3)     Arrive to school on time each testing day!
4)     Stay focused and relaxed while testing!
5)     Read directions carefully & try their best!
