As we prepare our 8th graders for the transition to high school and their math placement, we will administer the Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test (IAAT) the week of 3 March. The testing session lasts approximately one hour, and the scores assist high schools in making the best math placement possible for each student. The IAAT is a four part test that assesses how well a student can learn new material presented graphically or textually; requires students to choose an algebraic expression or equation that is the translation of a short verbal setting (word problem); presents a relationship between two sets of numbers in a table for the student to find the general rule for the relationship; and tests whether a student has any common algebraic misconceptions. Please visit your child’s teacher’s School Fusion page for the specific date of administration.

Representatives of outside groups, excluding recreational and sports leagues, can reserve space through the School Division Office of Risk Management and Security Services. To reserve a room in a school for an event, organizers can go to the Web site for community use of schools and facilities and follow the detailed instructions for registering. The Risk Management Web site includes a fee schedule and a link to “Frequently Asked Questions.” Use by outside groups does require adequate insurance and registrations can take a while to process; so groups should plan ahead.
For recreational and athletic use of school facilities, event organizers should contact the Prince William County Park Authority.
The Office of Risk Management and Security Services has prepared a document of “Frequently Asked Community Use Questions with Answers,” or FAQ. The FAQ addresses questions such as what type of activities are allowed, how long it takes a request to be processed and approved, and what fees are charged.
If parents and students attempt to login to Parent Portal and cannot remember their password, they can click on "Forgot your Password?" at the bottom of the login screen and fill in the requested information. The system will email parents/students a temporary password which can be used to access the system. Once they have logged in, they can go to "Settings" and change their password to something they will remember.
Also note that the Parent Portal passwords for students and parents must be changed via the Parent Portal and not in SchoolFusion. When a parent or student changes his/her password in Parent Portal, it will be immediately available in SchoolFusion.
