CAASPP Testing

Each year, all students in California are required to participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).  As a reminder, participation in standards-based testing is part of the Master Agreement and the student contract you signed when you enrolled your child at Mountain Oaks.  Participation in testing is not only helpful for teachers and families to identify the learning needs of our students, but it is also mandated by the state of California.  If Mountain Oaks fails to test at least 95% of our students, our school could face severe penalties from the State of California and other regulatory agencies.  These penalties could include the revocation (closure) of Mountain Oaks Charter School. The CAASPP Testing window opened on April 19 and will close on May 18. Students in grades 3-8 and 11-12 will be participating this year. Click article title for more important information. Posted 4/19/22
