Hello LHS Juniors and Parent/Guardians of LHS Juniors:
As you know, we are currently half way through our California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress. I am pleased with our progress so far. I am asking your assistance in ensuring that juniors continue to take the assessments and that they take them seriously. There are several reasons for doing so:
1. We must achieve a 95% participation rate for both the English and Math sections of the assessment in order to receive an Annual Yearly Progress score. This score allows us to determine how well we are performing in comparison to other public schools throughout the state and country. Failure to reach a 95% participation rate can impact our funding and grant opportunities. Each student who does not take the assessment lowers our chance of achieving the 95% participation rate.
2. The Early Assessment Program (EAP) is embedded within the assessments. The EAP provides students the opportunity to save time and money by taking the California State University placement tests for free. Students who pass the EAP unconditionally are exempt from having to take the placement tests prior to enrollment in most CSUs and many California community colleges. Even if your student is not planning on attending a CSU, the results will provide your student with a good idea of his/her readiness for college and what he/she need to focus on to improve readiness.
3. The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress itself provides feedback on students' academic strengths and areas for growth. This information can help us create a personalized learning experience for your child. You can also rest assured that the assessment is only one of the many tools used to measure your child’s growth and development.
Students who missed the English portion of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress that we administered this week will take it during make-up sessions that are currently being scheduled.
Thank you for supporting Livermore High School in this effort.
