Help Raise Funds for Willow Glen Education Foundation

Since Safeway no longer participates in eScrip, the Foundation has lost a large source of income.  There is a new program that is easy to use and easy to raise funds for the Foundation. Numerous retailers (including Safeway and Amazon) participate, so there are more opportunities to direct some of our shopping dollars back to the Foundation to benefit our children. While money will be directed to the Foundation, there is no extra cost to you to use the App.  Please click here for more information.

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.
