Update on State Testing

Dear Parents and Guardians:

 

Today, U. S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced that students impacted by school closures due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic can bypass standardized testing for the 2019-2020 school year.  California Governor Gavin Newsom had requested a waiver seeking to cancel the exams in California and the federal announcement now allows California testing to be waived.

 

With the federal announcement, California will join other states across the nation and NOT administer state tests to students in grades 3 – 6 as required to meet federal requirements.
