Hello Poet Families!

      We have been hard at work the last couple of years preparing for and beginning implementation of the new California State Standards also referred to as the Common Core Standards.We have been hard at work the last couple of years preparing for and beginning implementation of the new California State Standards also referred to as the Common Core Standards.  There were many changes made to the standards at each grade level and it will take some time to fully implement changes in curriculum and teaching.  A new test was developed to reflect the changes in the standards and our students took that test for the first time last spring.  There were four tests per grade level and they took about 7 hours to complete.  The results for the test were released by the State on Sept. 9th.  Our district will be mailing results for individual students to all parents over the next few weeks. 
      You can find the results at under Testing & Accountability.  Click on the link entitled
2015 CAASPP Results
There are a few things to note about the testing results:
1. These results are “first year/baseline” scores.  Because there are all new standards and a completely different test, the results cannot be compared to previous year scores.  These results will be used to measure progress moving forward.
2. With the CAASPP there are four achievement levels ):  Standard Not Met, Standard Nearly Met, Standard Met, and Standard Exceeded.  The previous STAR & CST tests had five levels of performance.
3. The new tests reflect rigorous and challenging standards designed to prepare students for the 21st Century workforce.
Below is a link to an article on a website with good information about the standards and the new test.  I think you will find the article informative and helpful.
