Updated January 11, 2019

This guidance is intended for District Administrators with students in PSIS who attend Out-of-State Facilities or who are in In-State Non-Approved Facilities. Connecticut public school districts are responsible to test students in the Public School Information System (PSIS) who are enrolled in out-of-state facilities or are enrolled in-state non-approved schools. This document includes information on how to administer the Connecticut Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) assessment, Connecticut Alternate Science (CTAS) assessment, Smarter Balanced assessment, and the Connecticut Alternate Assessment (CTAA). It is also required that districts test these students in Grade 11 who are enrolled in out-of-state or in-state non-approved programs with the Connecticut SAT School Day assessment.
