Students had equal say as adults as more than 100 parents, students, staff and neighbors gave input at a March 23 community forum about creating a new Preschool–8th-grade school in the District.

The meeting began with attendees using stickers to vote on the Guiding Principals the Transformation Team will consider as it develops recommendations for the Governing Board. Then, participants and facilitators separated into affinity groups—parents with other parents, students with students, and so on—so they could discuss hopes, concerns and ideas for the new school. They consolidated their input and reported it back to the whole group. Their responses are posted on the District's Transformation web page in the March 23 meeting notes.

In April, the Transformation Team will review the responses and identify common themes to address in recommendations it sends to the Board in June.

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.

The State of California is field-testing a new school accountability tool that uses multiple measures to report school performance and growth.

 Watch the Video

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.
