California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP)

Greetings Ravens Community, 
We will not administer the CAASPP in any grade for ELA and Math this year since the Renaissance Star Reading and Star Math we’ve been using for all students will meet the federal testing requirements for 2020-2021 for ELA and Math.  That said, I wanted to provide you with the essentials of what next week will look like so you can plan accordingly. 
  • We will still proceed with the Science (CAST) test on Tuesday April 20th during period 2 to 11th and 12th graders only.
    • 12th grade students will participate in the CAST for Science since they did not participate last year as testing was suspended.
 
  • 11th and 12th Grade Students need to download a secure browser on their personal devices. 
    • District Chromebooks will already have this installed.
    • Personally owned Chromebooks will not work, all other devices will.
 

  • Unscheduled period 2 students, and a few other small groups, will be invited to a specifically made Google Classroom to obtain their test session ID.
    • The testing location for those on campus will be provided as well.

Thank you,

STAR ASSESSMENT

STAR ASSESSMENT

AB 77 mandates that all districts and schools have a method to measure and address student’s learning status and learning loss. SDUHSD does not currently administer an academic assessment or universal academic screener to all students in grades 7-12. A team of math and English teachers worked together over the summer to investigate research based assessments for students in grades 7-12. Through the investigation, the team chose the STAR assessment. Results of these assessments will help teachers prescribe intervention for students.
California Healthy Kids Survey

California Healthy Kids Survey

The California Healthy Kids Survey will be given on 3/17/21 with a modified Bell Schedule. If you would like further information, here is our district letter.
 
The 2019 results from our administration of the CA Healthy Kids Survey are now available. Please visit the SDUHSD website to access both our district and Canyon Crest Academy results.
 
PFT: Physical Fitness Testing

PFT: Physical Fitness Testing

The physical fitness test (PFT) for students in California schools is the FITNESSGRAM®. The main goal of the test is to help students in starting life-long habits of regular physical activity. Students in grades five, seven, and nine take the fitness test. The test has six parts that show a level of fitness that offer a degree of defense against diseases that come from inactivity. The test results can be used by students, teachers, and parents.
 
The Governor's Office issued Executive Order (EO) N-56-20 (https://www.gov.ca.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/EO-N-56-20.pdf) that included a waiver of the Physical Fitness Test (PFT) for the 2019-20 school year. Specifically, the EO stated the following: Education Code section 60800, requiring each LEA maintaining any of grades 5, 7, and 9 to administer a physical fitness performance test to each student in those grades, and Education Code sections 33352(b)(4) and (5), requiring the California Department of Education to collect data regarding the administration of the physical fitness test, are waived for the 2019-20 school year.
 
PFT is suspended for the 2020-21 school year.

ELPAC Testing

Students who are designated English Language Learners will be tested with the English Language Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC).  These assessments are important in helping us determine appropriate supports and classes for students.  All students who are designated as an English Language Learner must take this assessment.
 
Last year, we were unable to administer the ELPAC assessments due to school closures. This year, we are scheduled to administer the ELPAC in May. Students will receive further information as we get closer to make their appointments to take the assessments. If you have any questions regarding the ELPAC, please contact Lara Rhoads (lara.rhoads@sduhsd.net) or Patricia Storey (patricia.storey@sduhsd.net).  Please see the linked powerpoint from last year for further information.
