2015 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress

The assessments that comprise the 2015 CAASPP administration are a mix of online and paper-pencil assessments. The online component contains the Smarter Balanced English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics tests. The paper-pencil component includes CST/CMA/CAPA science tests. In California, all students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 will participate in the 2015 Smarter Balanced (SBAC) tests, which include both ELA and mathematics content areas. These tests are administered online. The CSTs in Science are to be administered to students in grades 5, 8, and 10.

School Loop

Avalon teachers, counselors, officer personnel, and administrators communicate with students and their families through traditional methods and newly adopted technologies. The most recent communication tool available to our staff is School Loop. School Loop is a web-based site that offers 6th through 12th grade students and their families a wide range of information about the school and their individual student. Students, parents, and guardians may obtain Avalon Schools School Loop accounts, and not only view news and updates about the school, but also peruse their own child’s class and homework assignments, test grades, and overall academic standing. School Loop can be used to reach teachers, counselors, and administrators by e-mail. Families may obtain assistance to sign onto School Loop at Back to School, or by individual appointment through their student’s counselor.

 
The school website is also a School Loop product.
 
School Messenger, a telephone based communication system, offers teachers, counselors, office staff, and administrators a tool to relate information about individual students or school-wide news to families in their native language. Teachers have access to a menu of pre-recorded messages concerning classroom assignments, grades, behaviors, and activities, that they can send to family phones with the touch of a couple letters on the keyboard.
 
Administrators and office personnel possess the ability to send notifications to families of targeted groups of students or the entire school population. Attendance calls arrive on family phones automatically on the day a student is absent from one or more class period. The school receives a list of unsuccessful calls every time a  message is sent, improving our ability to update phone numbers for our students’ families.
