CAASPP Testing

Learning has probably been different for your child this year. Whatever “different” means for your family, one thing remains true- students have worked very hard and this spring they will have a chance to show what they know and can do. Since learning has been different, testing will be different too: The computer adaptive portion of the Smarter Balanced tests will be shorter than in previous years. This will give teachers more time to teach and students more time to master the material.

2020-2021 Statewide Testing Notifications

This is our annual survey that helps shape how we distribute the funding we receive. The survey should only take 15 minutes. Click the button below to start the survey. Thank you for your participation!

Social and Emotional Support

We also wanted to take a moment to highlight the mental health and social emotional supports available at CORE. We know this has been a hard year for many of our students and some of you may be struggling with your mental health. We have various staff members who are willing and available to support you. You can connect with your PLT or any other staff member and they can connect you with some of these supports. You can also visit our school SEL website by clicking this link,

Mask Protocol Reminder

All students must wear a mask on campus unless they have a medical exemption on file with the School Director. Students with medical exemptions on file are allowed to wear a shield with a drape.

Health Education Online Course for 7th and 8th Graders

The online independent study course is called Positive Prevention Plus. The course has 14 lessons and students have 45 days to complete the course.

The online course started on Monday, March 22nd.


Each year we must have all currently enrolled students who plan to attend CORE Butte next year fill out our re-enrollment information. This helps us figure out enrollment numbers. If you could please take a moment to follow the instructions HERE to complete this process.
