Description: The End-of-Year (EOY) Period moves the students from the state Testing Period through the last day of school. In best practice, it is a time to achieve closure and to begin transition and best
practice work for all stakeholders. We sometimes think of this as the beginning of the next school year.
Timeframe: The EOY begins two weeks after testing concludes and ends on the last day of school.
Goals: The goals for the EOY include:
• Bringing the current year’s learning to a close.
• Doing work that helps organize all of this year’s learnings in long-term memory.
• Transition activities to help the students move into an effective summer experience and make a successful transition to the next level.
• Aggregating the current year’s data for summer planning.
