Have you turned in yours?  All students should have received a CUSD Parent Handbook in the summer mailing before school began.  In the middle of the Handbook are blue pages (3) that need to be filled out, signed (by parent/guardian and student) and returned to the CMS Office.  Don't forget to carefully fill out and check off all sections on each page.  If you need another copy, we have extras in the office.

As you know, we have a long-standing partnership with Project Cornerstone.  This has been a very positive initiative for our school and our students. Approximately, every three years, a survey is administered to 4th, 5th, and 7th graders in our district, and the results are used to plan strategies and programs that will benefit our students.  You should have received a letter in your student's weekly communication folder with an opt-out form.  If you do not want your child to participate in the survey, please return the form to your child's Social Studies teacher no later than Friday, September 23, or alert our front office.

"The recent California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) scores reflect a ‘snapshot' in time of our progress towards mastering the Common Core State Standards, but they don’t tell the whole story,” said CUSD Superintendent Eric Andrew.  “We are disaggregating these results and reviewing our other assessment data to pinpoint where we need to bolster our instructional practice and ensure that all of our students succeed.” 

 He added that schools start this year with the newly adopted curriculum in our classrooms, 1-to-1 technology in nearly all grades, and students who are energized by the project-based learning we are able to provide through community partnerships. "We are going to leap ahead this year,” he said.

As of September 14th, the testing company is shipping the individual student reports to the district office. As soon as we receive them we will mail them to parents. More information about the State assessments and a link to the data is available on our assessment web page.

On September 8, the State Board of Education approved key elements of a new accountability system that evaluates schools and districts in 10 areas critical to student performance. Read the news release.
