Surrogate Parenting Training

This flyer is for a very important training for anyone interested in helping a student that does not have a “parent” to attend Individual Education Plan (IEP) meetings. The District is required to have volunteers who are properly trained to perform this role and the students they serve are very much in need of having an adult to help advocate for their educational needs.If interested in helping, please find all information on this flyer

Summer Reading

Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge
Our wonderful librarian, Michelle Edwards, has found the time to meet with all students and teachers to discuss the summer reading program.  She gave the students instructions for online and paper logging of reading minutes for the summer.  We are attempting to beat the world record for most minutes read over the summer.  We are one school participating with more than 6,000 schools around the world.  Our hope would be to win Best in State and get our school name published in the 2017 Scholastic World Records Book.  If you have any questions, they can contact Michelle at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

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.

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.
