ACT Aspire Information
Wanting more localized information about the new tests? The District’s Director of Administrative Services and several Academic Officers discussed the ACT Aspire, the ACT and WorkKeys in an Aiken Standard Article.

State Testing
State Testing Update for Spring 2015
Aspire (3rd-8th)- April 28-May 1
SC PASS (4th-8th) - May 7 & 8
     This past summer the S. C. Legislature changed the state testing program. A new test called Aspire will be given in grades 3 through 8 to test reading, writing, English, math, and science. Students in grades 4-8 will continue to take the SC PASS tests for science and social studies. The Aspire tests will be given on April 28 through May 1, and the two SC PASS tests will be administered on May 7 and 8, 2015. 
     The biggest change that our students will notice is that each Aspire subtest has a time limit. Students will be tested for approximately one hour per day, and the writing test must be completed in 30 minutes.  Some students may not finish before they must stop working and turn in their tests.  Our students are more familiar with the SC PASS tests, which have no specific time limits. Teachers are currently providing practice for students so that they will become more comfortable with the timed tests. The two different science tests will allow us to assess our students’ knowledge of the South Carolina science standards while still being able to compare our students’ achievement with their peers nationally

School Fusion Parent Account
A SchoolFusion Parent Account allows parents to view all of their children’s classroom information in one web location. Parents can check assignments, view important deadlines on FusionPage calendars, follow their children's sports calendars, school events and much more!  Once parents have created an account email notifications will be sent when new announcements and assignments are added.  Only parents/guardians of students enrolled in Aiken County Public School District are allowed to register.
 
To create a parent account, you will need the student id# for each student and birthdate.  The birthdate should be keyed in with  no leading zero or dashes.
