Upcoming Events

State Testing: Keep Calm and Study On

State testing will happen from mid-April through May, and we're doing our best to ensure our students do their best.

Each year, students in grades 3–8 will participate in the statewide testing program called the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). The tests cover English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics for grades 3–8, and science fore grades 5 and 8. They provide information to teachers, parents/guardians, and students about students’ progress and readiness for college and career.

The principal will send information about specific testing dates and times at your child's school.

Meanwhile: Don't Fret. Stay Informed.

Planning for Excellence

Strategic Plan Committee noted progress during its review of strategic goals and objectives, including STEAM, standards and student support.

The Strategic Planning Committee—35 students, employees, parents, community members, and Board members—met on March 7, 2017 to discuss progress, challenges, and next steps toward achieving the District’s strategic goals.

As part of the semi-annual review, the group created objectives to be completed by September 2018 and a list of current “Perceived Strengths and Accomplishments”.

The California School Dashboard is a new tool from the State of California that replaces the old Academic Performance Index (API).  It will provide parents, educators, and the public with important information they can use to evaluate schools and school districts in an easy-to-understand report card format.

The California School Dashboard is a critical piece of California’s new school accountability and continuous improvement system. A 5-minute video explains how the new tool works and what it looks like.
