The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, is the state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. CAASPP assessments include computer adaptive tests in English language arts and mathematics as well as paper-based tests for science. Students in third through sixth grade will take assessments in English language arts and mathematics. Fifth grade will also take the California Standards Test in science. Del Mar Union School District will be testing during a three-week window beginning May 2 through May 20.
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is an important component of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Under the LCFF all Local Education Agencies (i.e. DMUSD) are required to prepare an LCAP, which describes how they intend to meet annual goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities identified pursuant to EC Section 52060(d). We value your input in this collaborative process as we review progress on the LCAP and revise actions for the upcoming school year.
