The final day for DL-to-IP changes is April 26th

Please let us know if your family is considering switching learning modes. The sooner we have that information, the easier it will be for Bancroft to make staffing decisions, and arrange for school meals and transportation.

To change your student's learning mode -- in-person or distance learning -- the first step is to call the Bancroft office: 612.668.3550  

Changes will be implemented on Mondays.

MCA Testing for Grades 3, 4 & 5

In late April, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade students attending school in-person will be required to take the MCA reading and math tests. Additionally, in-person 5th graders will take the science test.  Distance learning families have the option of sending their students to school to complete the tests. 

The MCA tests for in-person students will be administered over the course of a few weeks. The MCAs for distance learners who opt to come in will be administered over two days for 3rd & 4th grade; three days for 5th grade.
