Roadrunner Folders ~Home/School Communication
Every Wednesday, your child will be given a 'Purple Folder' to take home. Inside you will find important communication from the school, corrected papers, forms that need to be completed by a parent, and even fun opportunities for your student and family. Please be sure to ask for the folder, if your child forgets to give it to you. By sending it right back the next day you can be sure to receive all communications that are sent on the next Wednesday.

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE    
Can we believe it’s April already? This is school year has gone by so quickly.  We have begun our state testing for 3rd-5th grade and 2nd grade Bilingual classes.  We will be testing for the next 6 weeks.  Please ensure your children are at school every day and are on time.  A good start of the day will help them be more ready for testing.  As you may have heard California’s new multiple measures accountability system is now available on the California Department of Education (CDE) web site. You may view the state test results from prior years. It’s a pilot system and the most recent and updated scores will be available next November, but prior testing results are now available.  The California School Dashboard is live at https://www.caschooldashboard.org/.  At this time the Dashboard reports district and school performance on the state indicators.  The local indicator functionality is in development and scheduled to be released in April 2017.  Also available on the CDE Web site is the Five-by-Five Placement Report which can be accessed at http://www.cde.ca.gov/dashboard. While the Dashboard displays the Status (current performance), Change (difference from prior performance), and performance level (color) for each state indicator, it does not identify which of the 25 performance results the district, school, or student group received. The Five-by-Five Placement Report identifies the location of the LEA, school, or student group on the five-by-five grid. Please take a few minutes to look over the data and find out more about the state tests your children are taking. The CDE website also provides several resources on their California Accountability Model & School Dashboard Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/dashboard

¿Pueden creer que ya es abril? Este año escolar ha transcurrido muy rápido. Hemos comenzado con nuestros exámenes estatales para los grados 3-5 y segundo grado, clases bilingües. Estaremos tomando exámenes durante las siguientes 6 semanas. Por favor asegúrese de que su hijo/a no falte a la escuela y llegue a tiempo. Empezar bien el día le ayudará a sentirse mejor preparado/a.  Como usted habrá escuchado, el nuevo sistema de medidas múltiples de responsabilidades está ahora disponible en el sitio web del Departamento de Educación de California (CDE). Usted puede enterarse de los resultados de exámenes estatales de años anteriores. Es un sistema piloto y los resultados más recientes y actualizados estarán disponibles el próximo noviembre, pero resultados de pruebas anteriores ya están disponibles. El Panel Escolar de California está en vivo en https://www.caschooldashboard.org/.   En este momento el Panel informa del desempeño de la escuela y el distrito en los indicadores del estado. La funcionalidad del indicador local está en desarrollo y está programada para hacerse pública en abril de 2017. El Reporte de Colocación Five-by-Five también está disponible en el sitio web de CDE; este está disponible en http://www.cde.ca.gov/dashboard.  Si bien el Panel muestra el estatus (rendimiento actual), el cambio (diferencia del rendimiento anterior) y nivel de rendimiento (color) de cada indicador, no identifica cuales de los 25 resultados de rendimiento recibió el distrito, la escuela o grupo de estudiantes. El Reporte de Colocación Five-by-Five identifica la ubicación de LEA, escuela o grupo de estudiantes en el cuadro cinco-por-cinco. Por favor tómese unos minutos para revisar los datos y obtener más información sobre los exámenes que sus hijos están tomando. El sitio web CDE también proporciona varios recursos en su página Modelo de Responsabilidades y Panel Escolar, en http://www.cde.ca.gov/dashboard.
 
Estamos muy emocionados de presentarles nuestra misión.  Nuestro personal ha estado trabajando durante este año escolar para finalizar nuestra nueva misión ye estamos muy orgulloso de presentarles nuestro compromiso a nuestros estudiantes: 
 
La misión de la escuela South/West Park es de educar, motivar y apoyar a que todos los estudiantes sean exitosos y ciudadanos productivos.
