Spring Testing Update
The 2020-21 school year has introduced new ways of teaching and learning and pushed us all to take on new challenges all while not giving up on our students or ourselves. The 2021 Summative Assessments mandated by the state will provide schools and families with another new opportunity--an opportunity to administer assessments that are closer to students and instruction and that will provide actionable feedback for teachers.
The California Teachers Association and the National Education Association together with many large urban districts in California urged the California Department of Education to submit a waiver for standardized testing for the 2020-21 school year to the US Department of Education. The waiver did not remove the requirement to administer assessments, but does permit districts some flexibility to use local assessments.
San Diego Unified School District plans to administer the FAST (Fast Track Reading) assessment for English Language Arts to students in grades 3-11 between now and June 15th, the District Essential Math Indicators (DEMI) assessment for math to students in grades 3-11 between now and May 27th, and a Social Emotional Screener to students in grades 4-12 between May 24th and June 15th.
If you have any questions regarding these assessments, please feel free to contact your student's teacher or Principal, Jeff Friedenberg at email@example.com.
