California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) Information and Opt Out Process

Each spring, schools across California participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress program, also known as CAASPP.

This year, your student will participate in the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts and mathematics (SBAC), the California Alternate Assessments (CAA), and, depending on their grade level, the pilot administration of the California Science Tests (CAST).

These assessments help school districts and the state monitor student progress under the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), which support more rigorous instruction 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.

Cada primavera, las escuelas de todo California participan en el programa de Evaluación de California del Desempeño y Progreso Estudiantil, también conocido por sus siglas en inglés como CAASPP.

Este año, sus hijos participarán en la Evaluación Acumulativa Smarter Balanced (SBAC) en Artes del Lenguaje Inglés y Matemáticas, en la Evaluación Alternativa de California (CAA), y dependiendo del nivel de grado que cursen, en la administración de la prueba piloto de los Exámenes de Ciencia de California (CAST).

Estas evaluaciones ayudan a los distritos escolares y al estado a vigilar el progreso de los estudiantes con respecto a los Estándares Académicos, Comunes y Fundamentales del Estado (CCSS), los cuales apoyan el que se imparta enseñanza más rigurosa y que existan expectativas académicas más altas para 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.
