It's spring, and that means it's time for some standardized testing! It used to be that we administered
the STAR test, but that was before the Common Core State Standards were implemented.
In place of STAR, students will now be tested with the California Assessment of Student Performance
and Progress (CAASPP). For more information about this test, read the
Letter From the Superintendent.
