MAP Testing

March 6, 2019


Dear Parent or Guardian of CMS Students,

Chimacum Middle School will begin MAP testing on Monday, March 18.   MAP, Measure of Academic Progress,  tests are conducted at the beginning of the school year and again in early Spring to monitor each student’s academic growth.  MAP testing will take place during the first two periods of each school day, Monday through Thursday, March 18 -29.    

During this time we ask that families take extra care that students get enough rest, have  breakfast and schedule appointments at the end of the school day.   Students who must miss school for illness will have an opportunity to complete the tests the following week.                 

As a school, we have a goal of students imporoving upon their scores from the early part of the year.  Please encourage your student to do the best they can on their MAP test, and discuss their progress with them.  These tests should encourage a student to grow in their academic learning.  Thank you for letting us work with your kidsl


David Carthum,

Principal, Chimacum Middle School

The Benefits of Reconfiguration

In an effort to improve student learning, while at the same time realizing a limitation of financial resources, it was determined that a reconfiguration of the grades was necessary. The following grade configuration provides the best options:

  • Primary grades K-2, with anticipated enrollment of 140 students
  • Elementary grades 3-6, with anticipated enrollment of 245 students
  • Middle and High School grades 7-12, with anticipated enrollment of 294 students
  •  Pi grades K-12, with anticipated enrollment of 52 students

Our new configuration will:

  1.  Improve the use of personnel, recently remodeled classroom space, and access to available technology, particularly in the elementary and middle grades.
  2.  Increase the use of instructional time by improving the proximity of class and support services for students, particularly in the middle and high school grades.
  3.  Improve the use of available financial resources by better utilizing faculty expertise and administrative leadership.
  4.  Improve the utilization of teacher and administrative time and talent, particularly in the middle and high school grades.
  5. Continue to improve student learning and utilize teacher expertise, along with continued emphasis on small class size at the primary grade levels.
  6.  Improve the utilization of available learning spaces, libraries, lunchrooms, and technology services for students and teachers, particularly in the middle and high school grades.
