Students in THIRD GRADE will be participating in the annual GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) assessment during the week of February 8, 2016. Students will be assessed over a three-day period using the CogAT 7 (Cognitive Abilities Test). Students are not encouraged to study for the CogAT. This tool simply measures how students think logically, not what they have learned in school.  More information is being sent home with third grade students.  Testing results are expected in June.  ONLY students deemed eligible for GATE will be notified and offered an invitation to join. If you would like to learn more about GATE or opting out of this assessment, please contact the school office.

Common Core Test News From the District Office

Our "Common Core Assessments" web page offers a wealth of information on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), also known as the "Common Core Test" or "Smarter, Balanced Test." Please visit the page to find an FAQ about CAASPP, links to      layperson-friendly websites about the assessment, and other resources. Families will also be receiving information about understanding the test results in the mail when the individual student reports are sent out. The state has not yet sent AUSD those reports, but we expect to receive them sometime in September.
