California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is the assessment system that collects important student data on the California Common Core State Standards. The CAASPP will be using a computer-based assessment for the 2019-2020 school year. The computer-based test will be given to students in grades 3-5 and will assess your child in English Language Arts and Math (SBAC). Additionally, all students in grade 5 will be assessed in Science (CAST assessment).
These assessments provide important information about our academic achievement as an entire school. It also provides information that impacts how we tailor instruction and support your child’s unique academic needs.
In order for our students to do their best on the test, we ask that you make sure that your child gets plenty of rest, goes to bed early, and eats a healthy, well-balanced breakfast. Also, please try to schedule any necessary appointments after school. We encourage you to promote confidence in your child’s ability.
