Aloha Konawaena Middle School Families,

First and foremost, thank you parents and guardians for working with our staff and teachers to make this unprecedented year as successful as possible. 

This year, Konawaena Middle School will be participating in the Hawaii SBA or Smarter Balanced Assessment along with the rest of the state. In addition, students will complete their final i-Ready assessment. This year’s SBA and final i-Ready assessment will be Monday, May 10th to Friday, May 21st from 8:15 am - 11:30 am at Konawaena Middle School.  

Student bus transportation is available for testing by completing the online bus application and making a payment before Wednesday, April 28, 2021. If you have not secured bus transportation, please follow the instructions found in the link below:

Students who are not reporting to campus for SBA testing are expected to complete their iReady testing virtually from home. 

All students (in person and virtual) are to report to their advisory teachers at the beginning of the day. Please find your student’s grade level and last name to plan for your student’s testing dates.
