Common Core Standards & Testing

What are Common Core State Standards?

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

Evergreen School District has begun to transition to Common Core Standards. We are happy to announce that over the next few years, you will notice some significant changes to instruction and assessment in our schools that will directly impact your child. In 2010, California adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for full implementation during the 2014-15 school year. As we near full implementation and begin to make the transition to CCSS, it is important that you know about these changes and what resources are available to help support your child.

For more information about CCSS, please visit Evergreen School District's Common Core Standards webpage.


California Assessment of Student Progress and Performance (CaASPP)

It is anticipated that parents will receive their child’s individual report mid to late September. To view a sample report, please click here. These reports will include detailed information about their child's performance on new, computer-based tests in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics, which replaced the former paper-based exams. While classroom instruction at all grade levels has shifted, the new State accountability system is in the process of being developed and will take into consideration state assessments and other indicators of school success.
