DISTRICT ANNOUNCEMENTS

caaspp California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) is the state academic testing program intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. Students who have the most significant cognitive disabilities, as designated in their active individualized education program, are eligible to take the California Alternative Assessments (CAAs).

Students in grades 3-8 and 11 will take either the computer adaptive CAASPP or CAAs in English and Math. In addition, students in grade 5, 8, and 12 will take California Science Test (CAST) in spring 2018.

In late summer/early fall, parents/guardians will receive the student score reports with overall score, a description of the student’s achievement level for English language arts, mathematics, science if applicable, and other information.

More information about CAASPP & CAST or CAAs

Parents/guardians have the right to exempt their child(ren) from taking the CAASPP, CAAs, and/or CAST. For more information about your school’s schedule or concerns about your child’s participation, please contact your school.

Be a Thornton Volunteer AVID Tutor

Here at Thornton, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a 7th and 8th grade elective that helps students achieve academic success and be college ready. We are looking for several parents to be volunteer tutors.

 

AVID students participate in tutorials on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and each tutorial group needs a tutor or facilitator to monitor the group’s progress and keep them focused. The job of the tutor is not to give the students the right answer, but to guide student members as they support the presenters. Tutors do not need to know the answer to the students’ questions to be effective.

 

Tutor training and ongoing support will be provided.

 

If interested, please contact Mrs. Harman-Murray at x 58036 or Ms. Odland at x 58038
