Our first planting event on Tuesday, November 5th was a great success. Thanks to everyone who came out and helped get our first plants in the ground. We’re looking forward to more planting events throughout the winter and spring.
Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Smarter Balanced assessment system uses both computer-based and computer adaptive tests, providing students with a wider range of questions tailored to more accurately identify the knowledge and skills individual students have mastered. The tests include performance tasks that challenge students to demonstrate critical thinking and problem-solving, and to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world problems.
The new assessment system is designed to measure student growth over time, which was not possible in California’s previous STAR test, and will provide teachers and schools important information to guide learning.
This year’s results will establish a baseline for the progress we expect students to make over time. Based on trial runs of the new assessments in California and other states, many if not most students will need to make significant progress to reach the standards set for math and literacy that accompany college and career readiness. Over time, as students experience multiple years of instruction related to the skills tested by the assessments, California’s results will show improved achievement.
Parents will receive a report of their child’s scores. But no student, parent, or teacher should be discouraged by these scores, which will not be used to determine whether a student moves on to the next grade. Rather, the scores will represent an opportunity to focus on the needs of students and support teachers and schools in their work to achieve college and career readiness.
Bridgeway students from 3rd-8th grade will be taking the SBAC test starting April7- May 18. Each grade level will have their own testing schedule. The schedule will be posted on our website.
Here are some helpful tips for taking the SBAC:
Get a good night’s rest.
Eat a healthy and nutritious breakfast.
Read the questions carefully and double check your answers.
Do your best!
Thank you for your continued support.

Common Core State Standards
Help Stop Bullying!
Effective January 7, 2012, when your student is absent you will have up to 72 hours after your child has been absent to verify/clear your student’s absences (via note, email- firstname.lastname@example.org, phone call to school, or submit a doctor’s note). If absences are not verified within the 72 hours, the absent/absences will be considered unexcused. Note: Once our attendance month accounting cycle closes due to non-verification we cannot overwrite or change that absent/absences.
