Dear Burnett Community,

      We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit The Burnett Middle School website. On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome you to the home of the mighty bears.  As an International Baccalaureate Middle Year Program School, we are committed to producing students who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.

      Students at Burnett are expected to take pride in their academics, be ready to problem solve, be able to communicate their ideas and ultimately, do their best each and every day. Due to our smaller school size, Burnett students have an excellent opportunity to take advantage of our technology and arts (including our award winning speech and debate) programs as well as become involved in school activities and have a meaningful middle school experience.

      I encourage you to become involved with your child’s studies and contact the school if you have any questions throughout the year. Only with a strong parent partnership can we assist your student in obtaining a high quality education and ensure your student has the best educational experience possible.

Go Bears!!!

Sincerely,
Kristin Luz, Principal


California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress program - CAASPP

Last spring, schools and districts across California participated in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress program, also known as CAASPP. This set of assessments provides information on student progress under the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), supporting more rigorous instruction in San Jose Unified School District and increased expectations for students.

Pursuant to California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Section 852, each year school districts are required to notify parents or guardians of their pupil’s participation in the CAASPP tests. In addition, districts are required to inform families of their right to exempt their student from taking the CAASPP tests. For families wishing to exempt their student from a CAASPP assessment, a written request specifying the test(s) to be exempted must be submitted annually to the school site.

To learn more about the CAASPP assessments your student may take, or the exemption process, please click here.

Evaluación de California del Desempeño y Progreso Estudiantil - CAASPP

La primavera pasada, las escuelas y distritos escolares de todo California participaron en el programa de Evaluación de California del Desempeño y Progreso Estudiantil, también conocido por sus siglas en inglés como CAASPP. Este conjunto de evaluaciones proporciona información del progreso de los estudiantes con respecto a los Estándares Académicos, Comunes y Fundamentales del Estado (CCSS). Los resultados de la evaluación brindan apoyo para impartir enseñanza más rigurosa en el Distrito Escolar Unificado de San José con el fin de aumentar las expectativas académicas de todos los estudiantes.

De conformidad con las reglamentaciones del Código de California, Título 5, Artículo 852, cada año a los distritos escolares se les requiere que notifiquen a los padres y tutores acerca de la participación de sus hijos en los exámenes CAASPP. Además, a los distritos escolares se les exige que informen a las familias que tienen el derecho a pedir que se les exente a sus hijos de tomar los exámenes CAASPP. Las familias que no deseen que sus hijos tomen una evaluación CAASPP, deberán pedirlo por escrito, especificando cuál examen o exámenes no desean que tomen sus hijos y entregar dicha solicitud escrita a su escuela, cada año.
