Spring CAASPP and SBAC Testing (Grades 3 – 5)

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) will be administered to students in grades 3 – 5 at Alamosa Park on the following days during the morning hours: Monday – Wednesday, April 13 - 15 and April 20 - 22. These technology-based assessments will measure student achievement and understanding of the Common Core State Standards in the areas of English language arts and math. Students in grade 5 will also be taking the CAASPP Science Test on Monday & Tuesday, April 27 & 28 as well as the 5th grade Physical Fitness Test through May 15, 2015.

I would like to remind students and parents about the importance of students coming to school well rested and nourished for the assessments. Even though we will have make-up sessions during the weeks of April 27 and May 4, every effort in making sure that students are present during the assessment times and that appointments are scheduled on other days is greatly appreciated.

Please click HERE for additional information about the CAASPP and SBAC.

I wish all students the very best on the CAASPP and SBAC assessments.
