Mandatory District Assessments
Each Spring, every 3rd-5th grade student in California is administered a state assessment (CAASPP) in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Districts were given flexibility with this requirement and is allowed to submit a District Assessment instead of the CAASP. It is very important that students complete the assessments listed below during the month of May.
Grade K: ESGI
Grade 1: F&P ELA and ESGI Math
Grade 2: 5 STAR Reading and Math
Please email your Supervising Teacher directly if you have questions about these mandatory assessments.
