Help Prepare Students for LEAP Testing
- April 5, 2011
In schools across the East Baton Rouge Parish School System, many students will be taking the LEAP standardized test the week of April 11. Besides paying attention in class and studying on an ongoing basis, students can prepare for testing in other ways. For instance, it's imperative they get plenty of sleep the night before and eat a healthy breakfast the day of testing. That way they are well rested, focused and energized. Parents are asked to help students get their rest and nutrition and encourage them to try their best during the testing period.
