Call it a parent-teacher conference in reverse. Educators at a Clearfield school plan to knock on doors to help students prepare for upcoming core testing.

At Holt Elementary, students are practicing for an upcoming opera. They're also preparing for the annual core tests. The ones connected to "No Child Left Behind." Last year, they fell a bit short. This year, Principal John Zurbuchen doesn't want a repeat. "It's important to us in a lot of ways to determine, you know, how we are going to see ourselves next year."

Zurbuchen, faculty and parents will spend a couple of nights this week knocking on doors, talking with parents about the test, telling them to make sure the children prepare, get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast and show up.
