Change in Policy for MHS Weight Room – The Meridian High School weight room is provided by the District for the education and instruction of District students.  Based on guidance from the Washington Risk Management Pool (the District’s insurance provider) the weight room will henceforth be available only to Meridian School District employees and current students.   Members of the public and former students who wish to use District facilities must submit a facility use application to rent the facilities when not in use by students.  However, facility rental of the weight room will not be allowed due the high risk nature of the equipment and potential liability risk to the District.

Smarter Balanced Assessment (Required)

All 3rd-8th grade students enrolled in MP3 (Alternative Learning Experience) must be assessed at least annually, using the state assessment for the student's grade level in English Language Arts and math as well as science (5th & 8th grade only) per WAC 392-121-182, Sec (9) (a) The annual assessment is administered each spring at the MP3 campus or local resident districts per inter-district agreement.

All students are included in the district's accountability measures, including "refusals" or "no shows" which are calculated as a "0" score which significantly impacts our overall school report card. Thank you in advance for your participation in the annual state assessment!
