This spring our Titans will be participating in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP- 11th Grade Students) or California Science Test (CAST- 12th Grade Students).  Completing these tests will require our campus to modify our bell schedule and test students during homeroom or history class.  
Keep in mind the following information to help us provide the best testing experience for your child. Please review the attached full text of our parent letter for more specific details on the testing process.

  • Wednesday May 29th will be a minimum day for all Titans.
  • Please see the attached modified bell schedules for our testing dates.
  • Advanced Placement (AP) testing is important to our students! We have intentionally chosen CAASPP and CAST testing dates/schedules to ensure there are no conflicts with AP testing.
  • Please plan accordingly for your child’s absences. Missing any testing period will require your child to test during a non-testing period, and therefore, miss important instruction. We encourage your child to be present during the testing periods.
