Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) are administered every year to measure how much of the academic standards students know and are able to do in reading, mathematics, and science.
Teachers and principals look for areas where students do well so they can strengthen the ways they teach these skills. They also look for areas that need improvement so they can increase teaching & learning time or adjust their teaching methods.
Reading, Mathematics, and Science MCA are administered online only

Welcome to Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School– home to the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School Silver Eagles.
Bug O Nay Ge Shig School was founded in 1975 in Cass Lake, Minnesota as an alternative school to serve 35 Ojibwe students from Leech Lake Reservation. The school was started in response to parents’ concerns that public schools were not meeting the students academic and cultural needs.
The school was named in honor of Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig (Hole in the Day), a local Ojibwe who lived in that area at the turn of the century. As Eddie Benton Banai shared at the school’s naming ceremony, “he fought for our land, he fought for our people, but uppermost, he fought for the future of our children.”
From humble beginnings, the Bug O Nay Ge Shig School has matured into a fully accredited educational program. Since that time, the school has transformed its role into a magnet school which serves Native American students living on or near Leech Lake Reservation. After 25+ years, the Bug O Nay Ge Shig School now serves more than 200 students of various tribal backgrounds.
It is operated by the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe and governed by the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig school board. It is located in the Chippewa National Forest in North central Minnesota and is now a K-12 school that provides open enrollment.
The mission of the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School is to provide quality education and promote healthy community through lifelong learners.
