California State Assessment Information
The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP is the new state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. This year, CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Fifth grade students only at Lucille Whitehead Intermediate School will pilot the California Standards Test in Science.
The CAASPP assessments are a key part of implementing the new Common Core State Standards. These assessments will provide an academic checkup by measuring real-world skills like critical thinking and problem solving. In addition, they will provide districts and schools information during the year to give teachers and parents a better picture of where students are succeeding and where they need help.
Beginning March 27th, 2017 all 4th through 6th grade students will take the CAASPP assessments in Math and English Language Arts. State Testing should be completed by April 13th. The assessments will be administered over multiple days. Students will be taking English Language Arts assessments the week of March 27th and Math assessments the week of April 3rd. 5th Grade Science and Testing Make-ups will be administered the week of April 10th-13th.
If you would like more information on state testing, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/. Please help your child have a positive testing experience by making sure they get to bed early, come to school on time, and eat a good breakfast. If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation, please contact your child’s teacher or the school office.

Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February. This day was originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington. The federal government officially refers to it as “Washington’s Birthday” when in actuality Washington’s day of birth is February 22nd. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present.
Lucille Whitehead Intermediate School will be closed on February 17 and February 20 in recognition of President's Day.
