Get Ready for the CAASPP - IMPORTANT

The CAASPP begins next Monday, May 17th!

Please take the following steps THIS WEEK to prepare for the testing:

  1. Write down your students SSID (SSID Instructions).
  2. Download/Access the CAASPP Secure Browser (Secure Browser Instructional Slide Deck).
  3. Get a Chromebook from the Main Office if you cannot access the CAASPP Secure Browser.
  4. Review the bell schedule for next week here, and note that students are starting everyday with their 2nd Period / Homestead teacher.
  5. Remind your child to try their best, but to not stress about their results as they won't impact their grades, standing, or placement.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our Vice Principal, Mr. Rosecrans, at
