Assessment Update

Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, California is moving to the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). These computer-based tests replace the STAR program. CAASPP is aligned to the Common Core State Standards for English and math, which California adopted in 2010 to describe what knowledge and skills students need to be well prepared for college and careers, no matter where they come from or where they live.

This year, CAASPP is being field tested to determine how well individual questions allow students to demonstrate what they know and still need to learn.

Who will take the test?
All students in grades 3-8 and in grade 11.

When?
Willow Glen Elementary’s testing schedule is:
Grade 5 Science:  April 9 and 10
Grade 3 CAASPP:  April 22-25
Grade 4 CAASPP:  April 29-May 2
Grade 5 CAASPP: April 28-May 2

Will parents receive test results?
No. Because this is a field test to determine how effective CAASPP is, schools, districts, and students/families will not receive scores.

Willow Glen Elementary offers families two outstanding educational programs to choose from: a traditional English-only instructional program or a Two-Way Spanish Bilingual Immersion Program. 

Both programs offer a rigorous curriculum based on state-adopted standards in English language arts, math, science, social studies and physical education. The TWBI program offers the same standards in two languages. All students receive classes in Art, Music and Science, third through fifth graders are eligible to participate in after-school classes in Instrumental Music and Choir.

The new Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. Click here for more information: http://www.sjusd.org/parents/common-core/

Willow Glen Elementary School sits in the center of the lovely Willow Glen township within San Jose.  It is a unique and elegant location, with a beautiful new two-story, 14 classroom structure and nine refurbished classrooms, library and cafeteria.  We have a highly trained staff of teachers and support personnel whose goal is to provide a challenging academic program.  We work within this diverse community to develop disciplined readers, writers and mathematicians.  The parent community embraces our diverse student population and helps to create a welcoming and supportive environment where each person is valued.  Parent volunteers provide our students with hands-on art experiences.  The PTA supports field trips, science lessons, and a large bilingual library, which further enrich the students’ understanding of their studies and connections to their community.
