California State Testing

Students will be taking the California state Test, referred to as the SBAC test, in ELA and Math from May 13th - 24th. 

Let's work together and make your child's experience a positive and successful one! Here are some suggestions you can do to help everyday:

  • Ensure your child arrives at school on time.
  • Have your child eat a healthy, protein-rich breakfast at home or at school.
  • Ensure your child gets a good night's sleep.
  • You may want to write a note of encouragement and put it in their backpack or lunch.
  • Encourage them to do their best, take deep breaths if they get anxious, not to give up on the really tough questions, and let them know that no matter what the test score is, that you are proud of them!

We've been preparing at school by focusing on perseverance, doing our personal best, and never giving up! It's important for students (and parents!) to know that while state testing is important and we do take it seriously, it is only one measure of showing what students know. This test alone won't be able to show all the ways your child has grown and all that they have accomplished. We are so proud of our Stanford Scholars!
