Ensign Weekly Video Announcements for September 22-26, 2014


Dear Ensign Community,


I am excited to announce that the Newport-Mesa Unified School district is funding a college readiness experience for all eighth graders in our district. ReadiStep is a College Board tool designed specifically for middle school students. This flexible assessment measures the knowledge and skills that students need to be on track for success in high school, college, and beyond. In addition, we will be using the ReadiStep test results to make informed decisions about curricula to improve students’ skills.


All Ensign eighth graders will be taking the ReadiStep test on Wednesday, October 15, 2014. More information about the ReadiStep test will follow.




Gloria Duncan, Ed.D.
