What is happening in May?

The last month of school is always such a whirlwind of activities and events. We have moved a few events to accommodate other school activities or avoid after school events for families 4 nights in one week!

  • Teacher Appreciation Brunch on Monday May 2nd. Volunteer parents and SHSA donate time and yummy food to our wonderful Schallenberger teachers every year. We need 20 volunteers in shifts between 10am and noon while the teachers take a break! If you can help, please contact Amy Missey at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
  • Canceling SHSA Membership Meeting on May 10th. Open House is held on the 10th, so we’ll be canceling this meeting as we have a second meeting planned for May 24th.
  • Family Fun Night is moving from May 13th to May 20th.  Since that week will be busy with open house and Starting Arts performances, we are going to move this event to prevent school participation burn out!  After much debate and discussion, the Board determined we will not be running a raffle at that event as we explored at the April SHSA Membership meeting

All nominations must be in by May 10th to be included on the ballot that will be distributed on May 19th for all members (that means you) to vote. Other key volunteer roles for next year are also open: Fall Festival Committee Chair and Spring Gala Committee Chair.

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.
