Each spring, we update our Local Control Accountability Plan, which describes how we’re going to meet our educational goals with the funding available to us.

One part of that plan is an assessment of how well we welcome and take advantage of parent involvement and engagement in our schools. We’d like to hear your feedback and opinions on that topic.

Click here to complete this short survey online in English or Spanish, by May 10. (Paper surveys are provided at the schools and the District office, but we prefer you take the survey online)

Thank you!

Each spring, students in grades 3-8 and high school participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). English language arts/literacy, mathematics, and science tests are included in CAASPP.

For CAASPP testing, students who have the most significant cognitive disabilities, as designated in their active individualized education program, are eligible to take the California Alternative Assessments (CAAs).

The testing window opens April 2 for NVUSD students. The actual testing period within that window varies at each school. 

This year, your child will take the following test(s), depending on his or her grade level:

  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment in English language arts/literacy (grades 3-8 and grade 11)
  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment in mathematics (grades 3-8 and grade 11)
  • California is in the process of implementing the California Next Generation Science Standards. As part of that implementation, students in grades 5, 5, 8, and high school will try out a new test called the California Science Test, or CAST.

These tests measure what your child knows and is able to do. Results help identify gaps in knowledge or skills early on so your child can get the support he or she needs to be successful in school.

For more information about tests, results, preparation, and the Alternative Assessments, visit the NVUSD Student Testing webpage.

For information on specific dates and times when your child will take the test in each subject, please contact your child's teacher or the school office.

State law requires all students entering 7th grade to provide proof of having received a T-DAP or Pertussis (whooping cough) booster, prior to the start of school in August. Students who have not received this booster shot will not be allowed to start school next August for the 2018-2019 school year. Parents will receive a letter in the mail soon which gives more detailed information regarding the state law. Proof of the vaccine should be brought to the student's school office.

Both state and federal law require all public schools to prepare and distribute a School Accountability Report Card (SARC) to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school including demographic data; test results; class sizes; teacher and staff information; curriculum and instruction descriptions; parent involvement opportunities, “adequate yearly progress” of students in achieving state academic achievement standards; Title 1 Program Improvement, graduation rates at the secondary level; and , the extent to which “highly qualified” teachers are teaching core academic subjects.

 

SARCs are always published on year following the data gathering.  Therefore, SARCs published in 2017-18 are now available for the 2016-17 school year.  SARCs are posted at http://www.nvusd.org/sarcpage.  Hard copies are also available at each school site upon request.  Please contact your school office to obtain a copy.

Worldwide, nationally and locally, humans are being challenged by forces of nature: fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and more. Close to home, we know the anxiety and uncertainty people feel when their world is changed overnight, such as the earthquake of Aug. 24, 2014. So our empathy for those in Texas, Florida, Mexico and other places is real and heartfelt.

 

Many in our community are uncertain and anxious due to the announced changes in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.  

 

Our Board of Trustees, as well as the County Supervisors and municipal councils, resolved in April 2017: “We aspire to be a model for inclusion and equity for all populations, including immigrants, refugees, and other newcomers and are committed to supporting the ongoing inclusion and long-term economic and social integration of newcomers, and to demonstrate values of unity and acceptance.”

 

We will continue to follow the policies put in place nationally, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, until new policies or laws are enacted, and remain committed to our vision of preparing all of our community’s children for college and careers in the 21st century.

 

El NVUSD se compromete a servir a todos los estudiantes

 

A nivel mundial, nacional y local, los seres humanos están siendo desafiados por las fuerzas de la naturaleza: incendios, huracanes y otros elementos. Cerca de casa, somos conscientes de la ansiedad y la incertidumbre que la gente siente cuando su mundo cambia de la noche a la mañana, como pasó con el terremoto del 24 de agosto de 2014. Así que nuestra empatía por aquellas personas que viven en Texas, Florida, México y otros lugares es real y sentida.

 

Muchas personas de nuestra comunidad tienen incertidumbre y ansiedad debido a los cambios anunciados sobre la normativa Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés).  

 

Nuestra Mesa del Consejo Directivo, así como los Supervisores del Condado y consejos municipales, resolvieron en abril de 2017: “Aspiramos a ser un ejemplo de inclusión y equidad para todas las poblaciones, inclusive inmigrantes, personas refugiadas y otros recién llegados, y estamos comprometidos con el hecho de apoyar la inclusión económica y social continua y a largo plazo de los recién llegados, y con el hecho de demostrar los valores de la unidad y la aceptación.”

 

Continuaremos siguiendo las normativas que se implementen a nivel nacional, inclusive la Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles, hasta que se promulguen nuevas normativas o leyes, y permanecemos comprometidos con nuestra visión de preparar a todos los niños y niñas de nuestra comunidad para la universidad y las profesiones del siglo 21.
