    • To officially opt in, districts should select "online" when ordering a test through EdTools .
    • The deadline to order paper tests is Jan. 27. Please order paper tests even if you are unsure of whether or not your district will go online this spring.
  2. The online practice test window will open Tuesday, Jan. 17, and will close a day before the operational window opens, April 16.

The commissioner will be sharing additional related information next week.
