SBAC Coming April 2020


The Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments are comprehensive, end-of-year assessments for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics that are aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics and measure progress toward college and career readiness.

The statewide California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System includes federally required science assessments in grades five and eight and once in high school (i.e., grade ten, eleven, or twelve). Since the adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards for California Public Schools, Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve (CA NGSS) in 2013, the California Department of Education developed the California Science Test (CAST), which is aligned with these standards.

How Much SBAC Tests Matter

The California State University is now using incoming freshmen’s test scores on the state's new standardized tests to decide if students are ready for college level math and English or if they need to take remedial classes.

Santiago ID Policy!

Students received their ID card and school issued lanyard at registration. Students either got a student ID card OR an ASB ID card if they purchased ASB membership for the year. All students will be required to visibly wear their Santiago ID DAILY on their Santiago lanyard while on campus. If a student loses or damages their ID card they will be required to get a replacement ID from the Shark Shop. Replacement ID cards cost $5.00 and replacement ASB ID cards cost $10.00.


In order to ensure school safety, drop offs in the front office are limited to ACADEMIC related drop offs. This means that ONLY homework or projects may be left in the office with the receptionist. Items NOT allowed:

  • Balloons
  • Flowers
  • Money
  • Gifts
  • Food

Thank you in advance for keeping our front office a place of business.

Santiago does NOT allow food delivery services like Uber Eats, Doordash, Grub Hub, etc. on campus during school hours.


Vaping on our campus is a suspendable offense. Currently, e-cigarettes, known as vapes, are the most common tobacco/nicotine products used among teenagers. Teens are using these vaping devices to inhale tobacco, flavored oils, and THC. Our goal is to reduce access and discourage the use on our campus. You can help support us by talking with your child about vaping, keeping an eye out for these products, or monitoring your child’s phone.

  • 3 or more days of school (excused and unexcused absences)
  • No action required from parents/guardians. Parent/Guardian may request a meeting to review attendance.


  • 7 or more days of school (excused and unexcused absences)

  • 10 or more days of school (excused and unexcused absences)

After School Pick Up - 2:30 pm

Attention Parents! Cars will not be allowed on campus for after school pick-up until 2:30 pm. Limiting traffic and visitors on our campus during school hours is a top priority for our safety.


In order to have enough space for our staff in the upper parking lot, Santiago is asking parents to park on the Foothill drop off area when picking up your child, dropping something off, or if you have a scheduled meeting on campus. Curbs have been painted white and it is no longer a red zone. Thank you for your cooperation.
