It's that time of year -- time for students in grades 3 - 8 and 11 to take the new assessments!
California’s new student-assessment program — called the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) — represents the next step in our state’s ambitious education remodeling project.
As of spring 2015, California schools replaced old tests with new assessments built to let parents and teachers know how well students are learning the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in today’s world. This year will be the second year of full implementation of the new assessments. Spring 2016 testing will take place mostly in April and May, depending on school district calendars.
California State PTA has free, downloadable resources to help families understand what the assessments and scores mean for student success and to help parents use the results as a tool to talk with teachers about progress:
What the Scores Mean -- Family-friendly explanations about the assessment scores
Smarter Balanced Resources -- This infographic from California State PTA and Children Now offers answers and resources on frequently asked assessment questions
Early Assessment Program -- A flier from California State University, California Community Colleges and University of California outlines what the assessments mean for 11th-grade students
And much more!

is tomorrow Fri April 22 | Hey @LASchools & @EagleRockElem let's make #EarthDayEveryDay @EPA
EPA History: Earth Day
The First Earth Day in April 1970 (https://www.epa.gov/aboutepa/epa-history-earth-day)
It may be hard to imagine that before 1970, a factory could spew black clouds of toxic into the air or dump tons of toxic waste into a nearby stream, and that was perfectly legal. They could not be taken to court to stop it.
How was that possible? Because there was no EPA, no Clean Air Act, no Clean Water Act. There were no legal or regulatory mechanisms to protect our environment.
In spring 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day as a way to force this issue onto the national agenda. Twenty million Americans demonstrated in different U.S. cities, and it worked! In December 1970, Congress authorized the creation of a new federal agency to tackle environmental issues, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
