Two, reasons. One, I work with a team of people who serve 24 students with autism and a special education preschool at Thurgood Marshall. The teachers, instructional assistants and therapists on this team spend hours of over time being the best educators they can be for these students and their parents. It is very typical to see staff working late into the evenings, attending workshops on weekends and sharing with their colleagues best practices for treating students with autism and other disabilities. This program is the oldest program serving students with autism in the Seattle School District and several of us have done so for 11-16 years. We know that it takes a Team to help our students learn and we are just that a TEAM!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
