    ACCESS Testing at Farnsworth Aerospace PreK-4

    • ACCESS testing has started for our in person ELL students and will continue throughout March. 

    • SPPS will be sending out a letter to our virtual learning ELL families asking if they'd like to have their child come to Farnsworth for the day to take the ACCESS test or opt out of the test this school year due to COVID. Please contact Allison McQuade at allison.mcquade@spps.org with any questions regarding testing. You may also contact our main office at 651-293-8675. 

    • ACCESS for ELLs is an English language proficiency assessment used to meet federal and state legislative requirements. These assessments are used to monitor English learners' progress as they develop academic language skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking. -MN Department of Education
