Student Email Accounts

San José Unified School District is aligning academic counseling services to all students in both middle and high school. As part of our initiative, we would like to prepare students beginning in middle school for College and Career Readiness. One step in this process includes creating a professional e-mail that can eventually be used to correspond with colleges, universities, and other post-secondary opportunities available to your student.

In the Spring of 2015, your 8th grade student will be creating a professional e-mail account with the help of their school counselor. The main purpose of creating this e-mail account will be for your student to create a California Colleges profile that will save their career interests and college searches. Through this email account, the middle school counselor may send students information about age-appropriate college and career opportunities available to them, such as summer programs and volunteer opportunities.The student will enter their e-mail into the Infinite Campus Student Portal, and when the student enters 9th grade, they will begin to receive emails from their high school counselor regarding college and career information through their Naviance account. (Naviance is a web-based college and career readiness platform that allows SJUSD high school students to manage their college applications and process).  As students transition to high school, and move towards their post-secondary college or career option, your child will be required to regularly check emails that colleges, universities, or workplaces may send with critical,  time-stamped deadlines. We would like to prepare our students to understand the importance of this practice as early as 8th grade.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact your school’s academic counselor. An opt-out form will be distributed to each student that parents/guardians may fill out if they prefer that their child not have an e-mail account.

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.

Para obtener más información de las evaluaciones CAASPP que podrían tomar sus hijos o sobre el proceso para pedir que a sus hijos se les exente de tomarlas, por favor haga clic aquí.
