7th and 8th Grade Parents To Take California Schools Parent Survey
All 7th and 8th grade parents are encouraged to take the California Schools Parent Survey (CSPS) before May 21st. Please click this link to access the survey: https://wested.ugam-apps.com/wed/ts/zQeZ
The CalSCHLS system was created by the California Department of Education (CDE) in 1997 to efficiently and cost-effectively provide school districts and their partner communities with quality local data which can be used to improve student academic performance and social-emotional, behavioral, and physical health of all youth. It assesses key indicators linked to success in school, career, and life. There are three parts to this survey:
- California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) - Completed by 7th-grade students
- California School Staff Survey (CSSS) - taken by Correia Staff
- California School Parent Survey (CSPS)
All three surveys were developed by WestEd with the help of Duerr Evaluation Resources and expert advisory committees of educators, researchers, and practitioners. The staff and parent surveys were added to address the needs of districts for data on school working conditions, parent involvement, and enable comparison of staff and parent perspectives to student self-reports. Follow this link for more information.
Parents of 7th-grade students have the option to not have their child complete this survey. Parents requesting their child not take the survey should complete this online google form prior to Monday, May 17th. 8th-grade families DO NOT need to complete this form because 8th grade students do not complete this survey.
IMPORTANT: State CAASP Testing Update
The district will use the FastTrack as our reading assessment and the DEMI - District Essential Mathematics Indicators for our mathematics assessment.
FastTrack Reading is a computer adaptive, standards-aligned reading assessment combined with selected grade-level skill and comprehension tests. We currently utilize the FAST test to provide reading levels. The Fast timeline remains the same with the window open until June 15. Our English teachers will provide a schedule for the Fast assessment.
The testing window for the DEMI closes on May 21st as sections of the assessment need to be hand-scored. Our Math teachers will assess Q4 math students during the math classes. OUr teachers will assess Q3 math students on Friday, May 14th.
More information will be sent out this week regarding next Friday's schedule.
We appreciate your support while we adjust to this short timeline!
