Student safety is our number one concern. In an effort to ensure a safe environment for
our students, ALL VISITORS MUST CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE, SIGN IN, AND WEAR A
VISITOR’S BADGE WHILE ON CAMPUS. Please
do not sign out ahead of time. This is for your safety. All staff is trained to question any adult
they see on campus during school hours without a visitor’s badge. This is for the protection of your student. Please help us keep our children safe by
following these guidelines.
LUNCHES AND SAFETY
Parents are to bring lunches to the office labeled with student's
names. Students are not allowed to pick up lunch from persons in a car
Students are not to approach cars during the school day, even if
the person in the car is a family member. Parents and family members
(listed on the emergency card) who want to speak to their child must report to
Next Generations Science Standards (NGSS) and the Upcoming CST (STAR) Standards Test
On September 4, 2013, the State Board of Education (SBE) adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for California Public Schools, Kindergarten through Grade Twelve. Because these standards require significant changes in science instruction, full implementation of NGSS is planned to occur over several years. Full implementation is not expected until the 2016-17 school year.
However, per Assembly Bill 484 (2013), California students will continue to be assessed in grades 5, 8, and 10 based on the 1998 California Science Standards. Because teachers are transitioning their teaching practices to align with NGSS, there may not be total alignment with the California Standards Tests which are based on the 1998 standards. Although we do not expect significant differences, this discrepancy may affect CST scores. This does not mean that our students are any less proficient in science then they used to be. It simply means that teachers are transitioning to the more rigorous NGSS standards and will not cover all of the same content from the 1998 standards.
