Statewide Testing For Students
Statewide testing is important because it helps ensure all public school students, no matter where they go to school, receive a quality education.
Washington students are regularly tested by the state to assess their progress as they move through school. In high school, they must pass specific exit exams
, or state-approved alternatives
, to be eligible to earn a certificate of academic achievement/high school diploma. (Assessment is one of the graduation requirements
OSPI develops or selects and administers all state assessments. We also report achievement data
for students, schools, districts, and the state. These data help districts and schools decide which teaching practices and curricula best support student understanding of the Washington State Learning Standards
. They also give families valuable information about how well their child is doing and where additional help might be needed.

CPPS Opens RFP Process For Space in Business Mall
The College Place Public School District announced today that it will begin accepting Request For Proposals for retail space in the new Business Mall/Market to be located on the District/High School Campus at 1755 S. College Avenue.
The Business Mall/Market is slated to be open in March of 2016 along with the completion of phase 5 of the District bond construction project.

The Mall/Market will reside in the former bus garage and has been designed as a 2000 square foot retail space with 4 distinct areas for lease. The Market will mimic the look and feel of the Melrose Market in Seattle, WA
