If your students are performing at an eighth grade level or below on their i-Ready diagnostic assessments, your student will automatically have access to personalized learning lessons that are geared specifically to your students’ strengths and learning needs. Tell your students to STRIVE for 45! Students who work on their i-Ready lessons for 45 min. per week in each subject area have shown great progress, and have the opportunity to be featured in our monthly newsletter. Great news, your students’ lessons will be available from now through the month of July.

CAASPP Update - TESTING WINDOW - 4/12 - 5/14
Thank you for your continued support and patience as we navigate through the remote CAST science assessments. Our students are working hard, and we are so proud of their efforts. Just a friendly reminder that students should have scratch paper and pencils during testing, and should keep the device plugged in to charge the battery. Students may not have access to phones and Smartwatches during testing, and they cannot access other tabs or the test will be paused. Please ensure that your student eats a well balanced meal and gets plenty of sleep before testing.
