Our CMS Counseling department is currently conducting test taking strategies with our students. We are using the P.I.R.A.T.E.S. strategy, which you can review with your students at home, to help them prepare for their SOL tests.

P = Prepare to Succeed

I = Inspect the Instruction

R = Read, Remember, Reduce,

A = Answer or Abandon

T = Turn Back

E = Eliminate

S = Survey

Please contact your grade level counselor with any questions about PIRATES.
