Dear Parent/Guardian,


From April 2019 to June 2019, your child will be participating in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System.

CAASPP is an annual academic testing system that provides information on student progress to ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and/or career. CAASPP assessments include English–language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics for students in grades 3 – 8 and 11.  Students in grades 5, 8, 11, and 12 take a science test. Eligible Spanish-speaking English learners enrolled in grades 2-11 also take the Standards-based Test in Spanish (STS).

The tests include traditional multiple-choice questions as well as ones that require students to explain their answers and show their work.  To learn more, you and your child can visit the California Department of Education Website at this web address http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/  and select the Parent and Student tab.

Following spring 2018 CAASPP testing, individual student CAASPP score reports will be available to parents. Student reports include an overall score and a description of the student’s achievement level for ELA and mathematics. Reports will also be available for students who take the science test.  Early Assessment Program (EAP) results will be included on the score reports for students in grade 11.  STS results are reported on a separate report.

These test results aren’t meant to tell the whole story. The scores are one of several ways for you and your child’s teacher to see how your child is progressing in school. Report cards and teacher’s observations of your child’s performance in the classroom are also used to form a complete picture of your child’s achievement.  

As the parent or guardian, you have the option of excusing your child(ren) from any part of the CAASPP.  If you would like to excuse your child from any of the tests, you must submit your request in writing to the school [Education Code 60615.]  Please let the school know as soon as possible so we can make alternative arrangements for your child(ren). Return letter to Ms. Rosales, Categorical Program Adviser/TSP EL Adviser

At Saticoy Elementary our goal is for all students to achieve their full potential. The CAASPP test results are one way we can better understand if we are meeting that goal. Thank you for all you do to partner with us in your child’s education.  If you have any questions regarding CAASPP, please contact Ms. Rosales at (818) 765-0783


Thank you,




Estimado padre o tutor:

Entre abril del 2019 a junio del 2019, su hijo(a) participará en la Evaluación de California sobre el Desempeño y el Progreso Estudiantil (CAASPP).   

La evaluación CAASPP es un sistema de evaluaciones académicas que proporciona información sobre el progreso estudiantil para garantizar que todos los estudiantes se gradúen de la preparatoria listos para la universidad y las carreras. Las evaluaciones CAASPP incluyen Inglés - lengua y Literatura (ELA) y matemáticas para estudiantes de 3º a 8º grado y del 11º grado.  Los estudiantes de 5º, 8º, 11º y 12º presentarán una evaluación de ciencias naturales. Los alumnos de inglés que sean hispanohablantes elegibles del 2º al 11º grado también presentarán la versión en español de las pruebas basadas en las normas (STS).

Esta evaluación incluye preguntas tradicionales de opción múltiple así como las que requieren que los estudiantes expliquen sus respuestas y demuestren su trabajo.  Para mayores detalles, visite junto con su hijo el sitio Web de la Secretaría de Educación del Estado de California http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/  y seleccione la pestaña de Padres y Estudiantes.

Después de la sesión de evaluaciones CAASPP de la primavera 2018, los resultados individuales que hayan obtenido los estudiantes estarán disponibles para los padres. Las calificaciones estudiantiles incluyen la calificación general y una descripción del nivel de aprovechamiento del estudiante en inglés ELA y matemáticas. Reportes también estarán disponibles para los estudiantes que presenten la evaluación de ciencias.  Se incluirán los resultados del Programa de Evaluación Temprana (EAP) en las calificaciones de los estudiantes del 11º grado.   Los resultados de STS se reportan en una boleta de calificaciones aparte.

Estos resultados no ofrecen un panorama completo, ya que constituyen una de varias medidas para que usted y el maestro de su hijo observen el progreso escolar del estudiante. También se utilizan las boletas de calificaciones y observaciones del maestro sobre el desempeño del estudiante en el salón para completar dicho panorama sobre el aprovechamiento de su hijo.  

Como padre de familia o tutor legal, usted tiene la opción de exentar a su hijo para cualquier parte de la evaluación CAASPP.  Si desea que su hijo no participe en cualquiera de las evaluaciones, deberá presentar por escrito dicha petición a la escuela  [Código de Educación 60615.]  Favor de indicarle a la escuela en cuanto sea posible para que podamos hacer arreglos alternativos para su(s) hijo(s).

En Saticoy nuestra meta consiste en que todos los estudiantes alcancen su máximo potencial. Los resultados de las evaluaciones CAASPP constituyen una medida para determinar si estamos logrando esa meta. Gracias por todo lo que hacen para colaborar con nosotros en la educación de sus hijos.  Si tienen alguna pregunta sobre la evaluación CAASPP, favor de comunicarse con Ms. Rosales (818)765-0783

Les agradece,

Mrs. Awakian                                                                                                             



ELPAC 2018-2019

What is the Initial ELPAC?

The Initial ELPAC is used to identify a student as either an English learner who needs support to learn English or as proficient in English.


Why do we administer the ELPAC?

Identifying students who need help learning English is important so students get the support they need to do well in school while receiving instruction in all school subjects. Every year, students who are English learners will take the Summative ELPAC to measure their progress in learning English, until they are reclassified as proficient in English.


Kindergarten-5th Grade Initial ELPAC is admisnitered by the classroom teacher started August- June 2019.


First Initial Notification Letters will be distributed by September 12, 2018- 30 calendar days from enrollment.




Ms. Rosales



Letter about ELPAC 2019

Dear Parent/Guardian:


Identifying students who need help learning English is important so these students can get the support they need to do well in English language arts/literacy, mathematics, science, and other subject areas in school. The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California, or “ELPAC,” are the tests used to measure how well students understand English when it is not the language they speak at home. Information from the ELPAC tells your child’s teacher about the areas in which your child needs extra support.


This spring, your child will take the following test:


  • ELPAC Summative Assessment


More About the ELPAC


Students in kindergarten through grade twelve, who are classified as English learners, will take the ELPAC Summative Assessment every year until they are reclassified as proficient in English. Students are tested on their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing.


To learn more about the ELPAC, please read the Parent Guide to Understanding the ELPAC, which can be found on the CDE Parent Guide to Understanding the ELPAC Web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ep/documents/elpacparentguide.pdf.


The ELPAC practice tests are another good resource. They can be found on the ELPAC Web site at https://www.elpac.org, where parents and students can see the kinds of questions that will be on the test.


If you have any questions about your child taking the ELPAC, please contact Ms. Rosales at (818) 765-0783.







ELPAC 2020

The ELPAC is the test that is used to measure how well students in kindergarten through twelfth grade understand English when it is not their primary language. The ELPAC is taking the place of the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). Information from the ELPAC helps your child’s teacher provide support in the right areas.


The Practice Test gives students, parents and families, teachers, administrators, and others an opportunity to become familiar with the types of test questions on the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC). It includes examples of all of the types of test questions that may appear in the actual Summative Assessment at each grade or grade span. In an actual test setting, an Examiner’s Manual, a Test Book, and/or an Answer Book are used.


The test questions in the Practice Test are reproduced from these test materials.

Elementary School Progress Report Marking Practices and Procedures




The District has a four-level scoring scale for grades K-5/6 using the numbers 4, 3, 2, and 1 to indicate student achievement, with the score of four being the highest.

Aligned to the California content standards, these criteria describe the expected performance levels for students at each grade.

1. Achievement in the academic subjects is indicated as noted below. The following excerpts are from the K-5/6 progress report:

Academic Achievement Scores K-5/6

Indicates student progress towards achievement of grade-level California content standards.

4 = Exceeds grade level standards
3 = Meets grade level standards
2 = Progressing toward meeting grade level standards 1 = Minimal progress toward grade level standards N/A = Not assesses in current reporting period*

= Assessed during reporting period

*N/A may be used in reporting periods 1 and 2 only. A final numeric score must be given in all subjects for the final, reporting period 3.

2. Scores for TK-5/6 Behaviors of a College-Prepared and Career-Ready Learner indicate student’s demonstration of the 21st Century Skills in connection with the expectations of their grade level standards. The following excerpts are from the progress report:

Behaviors of a College-Prepared and Career-Ready Learner K-5/6

Indicates student’s demonstration of the 21st Century Skills aligned to the California content standards (CCS) expectations from CDE.
C = Consistently
S = Sometimes

R = Rarely


1. Scores for English Language Development (ELD) indicate the amount of progress an English learner has made toward achieving the state ELD standards Part I: Interacting in Meaningful Ways and Part II: How English Works.



Advanced Progress

Demonstrating ADVANCED PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


Average Progress

Demonstrating PARTIALLY PROFICIENT PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


Partial Progress

Demonstrating AVERAGE PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


Limited Progress

Demonstrating LIMITED PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


With the LAUSD implementation of the 2012 California ELD standards there was a shift from five English language proficiency levels to three levels. The three English language proficiency levels are as follows:



Bridging: Students at this ELD proficiency level continue to learn and apply a range of high level English language skills in a wide variety of contexts, including comprehension and production of highly technical texts. Students are ready to transition to full engagement in grade level academic tasks and activities in a variety of content areas without the need for specialized ELD instruction.


Expanding: Students at this ELD proficiency level are challenged to increase their English skills in more contexts, learn a greater variety of vocabulary and linguistic structures, and apply their growing language skills in more sophisticated ways appropriate to their age and grade level.


Emerging: Students at this ELD proficiency level typically progress very quickly, learning to use English for immediate needs as well as beginning to understand and use academic vocabulary and other features of academic language.


















Smarter Balanced Assessment SBA March 2019- June 2019

What is Smarter Balanced?

Smarter Balanced is...

  • A Better Assessment System

    Using the Digital Library, teachers can access resources to support student learning. Teachers can also use optional and flexible interim tests to check student progress throughout the year. Summative, or end-of-year tests, measure student achievement and growth in English and math in grades 3–8 and high school. Learn about our complete system.

  • A Customized Assessment

    Students take a customized test using a computer adaptive format: questions get harder when students answer correctly and easier when they answer incorrectly, allowing students to better demonstrate what they know. Read more about testing technology

  • Designed for All Students

    Additional supports make the assessments accessible to students with disabilities and English language learners. Explore accessibility and accomodations features.

  • Relevant to College and Career

    The online format with extended research, writing, and problem solving tasks measure the critical thinking and problem-solving skills students need for success. Learn what makes the assessment useful for life after high school.

  • Useful for Teachers

    Our system helps inform instruction and identify where students need more support. A Digital Library of tools—including professional development materials and instructional resources—is available to teachers to use all year to meet students’ individual needs. Go to the Educators page for more information.

CAST 2017-2018

The California Science Test (CAST)


The California Science Test or CAST is part of the state testing program called the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress or CAASPP. The CAST will be field tested in 2017‒18 and be operational in 2018‒19.

The CAASPP System is designed to give information to teachers, students, and their families about what students know and are able to do. It also indicates whether they are on track to be ready for success in college or career when they graduate from high school.


Who Takes CAST? All students in grades 5 and 8, and once in high school, depending on when they take their last science class.


How can I help my child get ready for the test?

You are an important part of your child’s education. Some things you can do to help your child are:

  • „  Discuss the test with your child. Make sure they are not scared or anxious.

  • „  Tell your child that you and their teacher have high expectations and that you are both there to help them every step of the way.  Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing.

  • „  

  • Take a training test with your child.

  • Training tests can be found at http://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html.

Dual Language Education Can Close Achievement Gap



Dual language learning has been found to be the only method of second language acquisition to facilitate the full closure of the achievement gap between English learners and English speakers in primary and secondary education. Strictly structured and well-implemented dual language instruction across all subjects of the curriculum provides all students the opportunity to develop a deep academic proficiency in two languages, which will give them the tools to become highly-sought-after bilingual professionals in today's more globalized world.

About Saticoy

School Accountability Report Card


By February 1 of each year, every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC.
