Welcome to Tenino

Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

Whether you are searching our website from outside of our school district or as a district resident, welcome to the Tenino School District. Tenino schools serve approximately 1,200 students, preschool through 12th grade.

We are a community of wonderful students, caring parents, and a strong dedicated faculty and staff. The school board is a highly motivated group of community members with a passion for improving our district. The district invites the entire community to support the concept of Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow. Together we can ensure that the students of Tenino will be career or college ready when they graduate.


Smarter Balance Testing Begins

Starting this school year, our state’s learning standards are now aligned to the Common Core State Standards in math and English language arts. The transition began when the state superintendent of public instruction adopted the new standards in 2011. Each school district has been making the transition according to what works best for their teachers and students.

New state standards mean new state tests. Washington is participating in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, along with 22 other states. It is a state-led consortium working to develop assessments that accurately measure student progress toward college- and career-readiness.

This spring, children will take the new Smarter Balanced tests in math and language arts. These new tests will replace the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) in math, writing, and reading. However, 5th and 8th graders will continue to take the MSP in science.

The new learning standards are more challenging than the standards they replaced. Some students who were considered proficient using the old standards will have a more difficult time reaching proficiency using the new standards. The results from these new tests will give a more accurate picture of whether students are on track to be college or career ready after high school.
    
Students will take the tests online. Tenino students are scheduled to take the tests starting in April.

For more information about the Smarter Balanced tests and to try out a practice test yourself, please visit the Smarter Balanced webpage. More information about the Common Core may be found on the teaching and learning webpage.

Please call or e-mail Tani Houk, the Tenino School District test coordinator, if you have questions about state testing.
