On March 16, 2021, the California State Board of Education (SBE) took action to move forward with the administration of the CAASPP for the 2020-21 year but with great sensitivity to the additional stress that annual assessments can place on teachers and students, understanding that some districts will not be able to administer the CAASPP because of the pandemic.
It is apparent that parents and guardians are more engaged than ever before in their student's learning and progress. Therefore, it is important that you are equipped with the most up to date information. To this end, the Kem High School District will administer the Star Renaissance assessment as the administration of the CAASPP assessment is not a viable option due to the equitable testing of all students. It is the district's priority to provide parents/guardians, to the clearest extent possible, with an indicator of whether or not their child is on track for grade-level learning. Therefore, parents/guardians will receive their student's Star Renaissance score reports from the 2020-21 Spring administration on or before July 31, 2021.
