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.

Parent Bulletin - February
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our Book Fair and Ice cream social is here to kick off the month of February. This is the perfect time to encourage your child to explore other books and genre. This year, our main focus for our primary grades is to develop the love for reading. As you know, research on reading comprehension tells us there is a high correlation between reading and comprehension. It is important that you inspire your child to read more and read widely. Partner with us to instill passion for reading with your child.
On Tuesday, February 2nd, please join our community at our yearly ice cream social in the cafeteria. As always, our hard working parent volunteers will be scooping their hearts out to make this a fun event for everyone. The ice cream social is from 5:00-8:00pm.
As always, many thanks to Mrs. Dailey, Mrs. Youkhanna, and Mrs. Leighton and to all our parent volunteers who helped make this event special. Thank you for all your hard work. I also want to personally thank our PTA and SELAC parents for helping during our Kinder Tours. We welcomed 30 families and we are very excited to welcome future TK and Kinder students this fall.
We just celebrated our 100th day of school last week. Keep in mind that February is a very short month and winter recess is around the corner. Every day counts as we go deeper in our curriculum and develop mastery and fluency of skills. Please avoid unnecessary absences and plan vacations around our breaks. Since our winter recess is in two weeks please enjoy this wonderful time with your family. Let us also remind our students to stay focused and to keep demonstrating the great qualities of a Reed Rockstar!
