Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
Welcome back from spring break! I hope everyone had a fun-filled and restful week.
As you know, students and teachers have been diligently preparing for CAASPP summative state assessments since the beginning of the school year. The time has come for our students to shine!
The testing window begins Monday April 9th and ends Friday, May 18th. Students in grades 3-8 have been familiarizing themselves with the testing process and content, including question types and online tools. Our district’s trimester interim assessments utilize a format similar to the state assessments, which allows our students to develop and practice the necessary testing skills.
The CAASPP summative state testing schedule for each grade level is now posted on the school website. On the home page, under “Quick Links”, scroll down to “CAASPP Testing Schedule” and click on it to display the schedule. We ask that parents avoid scheduling doctor or dentist appointments during the days your child’s class is testing. Students should get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy breakfast and come to school on time. If your child will be absent (due to illness or other unavoidable circumstances), he/she will have the opportunity to make up the test at a later time.
I am confident our students will excel on the state assessments, as they had in past years. Thank you for doing your part in our students’ success

The California Accountability Model and School Dashboard is California’s new accountability and continuous improvement system. This system provides information on how local educational agencies and schools are meeting the needs of our state’s diverse student population, based on a concise set of measures. The dashboard takes the place of our school’s past API score and contains reports that display the performance of local educational agencies (LEAs), schools and student group on a set of state and local measures to assist in identifying strengths, weaknesses and areas that need improvement.
