CAASPP State Testing
Our annual state testing, CAASPP, will be May 2-6. These are important tests that allow us to determine where our students are at. We look very closely at the data from these tests to help us plan school -wide instruction, intervention, and other supports needed to ensure all students are learning at high levels.
On an individual level, these tests help round out the picture for each student's academic progress. These results, along with grades, our reading and Math iReady diagnostic, as well as teacher input, allow us to know how individual students are progressing academically.
Please support your child and La Mesa by making sure students get a good night's rest, eat a healthy breakfast, and arrive to school on time and ready to go.
