Dear Parents and Guardians 
Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and Strategic Goals Community Meeting:
We invite parents and community members to participate in this important meeting to provide feedback on our LCAP, which embeds strategic goals developed this year through several stakeholder meetings.  In addition to our key focus areas of math instruction and integrated technology, the LCAP addresses 8 priority areas set by the California Department of Education.
Please attend the meeting to learn more and provide your thoughts and ideas prior to finalization of the plan for Board of Trustee approval, and subsequent submission to the Marin County Office of Education, which is charged with monitoring and approving plans in accordance with State requirements.
Where:  Del Mar Library (note change of venue)
When:   Monday, May 9, 2016

Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments (SBAC) Testing
This week, students in 3rd through 8th grades began end of year assessments to measure mastery of skills and content in Mathematics and English Languages Arts, aligned with the California standards taught in each classroom.  Last spring students took the SBAC tests for the first time to receive reported scores. SBAC questions are more rigorous than the former California Standards Test as they require students to think critically, demonstrate analytical writing and problem solving skills.  Testing has been paced throughout the next several weeks so as not to overwhelm students.
