Dear Parents/Guardians:


From Tuesday, May 1, 2018 – Wednesday, May 15, 2018  your child will be participating in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System.  

CAASPP is an annual academic testing system that provides information on student progress to ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and/or career. CAASPP assessments include English–language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics for students in grades 3 – 5.  Students in grades 5 take a science test.

The tests include traditional multiple-choice questions as well as ones that require students to explain their answers and show their work.  To learn more, you and your child can visit the California Department of Education Website at this web address http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/  and select the Parent and Student tab

Following spring 2018 CAASPP testing, individual student CAASPP score reports will be available to parents. Student reports include an overall score and a description of the student’s achievement level for ELA and mathematics. Reports will also be available for students who take the science test.  

These test results aren’t meant to tell the whole story. The scores are one of several ways for you and your child’s teacher to see how your child is progressing in school. Report cards and teacher’s observations of your child’s performance in the classroom are also used to form a complete picture of your child’s achievement.   

As the parent or guardian, you have the option of excusing your child(ren) from any part of the CAASPP.  If you would like to excuse your child from any of the tests, you must submit your request in writing to the school [Education Code 60615.]  Please let the school know as soon as possible so we can make alternative arrangements for your child(ren).

At PLAYA DEL REY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL our goal is for all students to achieve their full potential. The CAASPP test results are one way we can better understand if we are meeting that goal. Thank you for all you do to partner with us in your child’s education.  If you have any questions regarding CAASPP, please contact us at 310-827-3560.

Thank you,


Valencia Blue,

Estimado padre o tutor:

Entre martes, 1 de mayo – miercoles, 15 de mayo, 2018, su hijo(a) participará en la Evaluación de California sobre el Desempeño y el Progreso Estudiantil (CAASPP).   

La evaluación CAASPP es un sistema de evaluaciones académicas que proporciona información sobre el progreso estudiantil para garantizar que todos los estudiantes se gradúen de la preparatoria listos para la universidad y las carreras. Las evaluaciones CAASPP incluyen Inglés - lengua y Literatura (ELA) y matemáticas para estudiantes de 3º a 5º grado Los estudiantes de 5º presentarán una evaluación de ciencias naturales.

Esta evaluación incluye preguntas tradicionales de opción múltiple así como las que requieren que los estudiantes expliquen sus respuestas y demuestren su trabajo.  Para mayores detalles, visite junto con su hijo el sitio Web de la Secretaría de Educación del Estado de California http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/  y seleccione la pestaña de Padres y Estudiantes. 

Después de la sesión de evaluaciones CAASPP de la primavera 2018, los resultados individuales que hayan obtenido los estudiantes estarán disponibles para los padres. Las calificaciones estudiantiles incluyen la calificación general y una descripción del nivel de aprovechamiento del estudiante en inglés ELA y matemáticas. Reportes también estarán disponibles para los estudiantes que presenten la evaluación de ciencias.

Estos resultados no ofrecen un panorama completo, ya que constituyen una de varias medidas para que usted y el maestro de su hijo observen el progreso escolar del estudiante. También se utilizan las boletas de calificaciones y observaciones del maestro sobre el desempeño del estudiante en el salón para completar dicho panorama sobre el aprovechamiento de su hijo.   

Como padre de familia o tutor legal, usted tiene la opción de exentar a su hijo para cualquier parte de la evaluación CAASPP.  Si desea que su hijo no participe en cualquiera de las evaluaciones, deberá presentar por escrito dicha petición a la escuela  [Código de Educación 60615.]  Favor de indicarle a la escuela en cuanto sea posible para que podamos hacer arreglos alternativos para su(s) hijo(s).

En Playa del Rey ES , nuestra meta consiste en que todos los estudiantes alcancen su máximo potencial. Los resultados de las evaluaciones CAASPP constituyen una medida para determinar si estamos logrando esa meta. Gracias por todo lo que hacen para colaborar con nosotros en la educación de sus hijos.  Si tienen alguna pregunta sobre la evaluación CAASPP, favor de comunicarse con la directora al 310-827-3560. 

Les agradece,

Valencia Blue,

Directora, Playa del Rey
