Making sense of scores & life lessons on the yard: Highlights for Nov. 10 - 16, 2015

Highlights

Last spring, thousands of students took the new Smarter Balanced assessments online, replacing the old paper-and-pencil standardized tests of the past, and now aligned with the new Common Core curriculum. Parents received their child’s score report recently, and to help families make sense of the reports, staff from the SFUSD Achievement Assessments Office will provide help on reading and interpreting the reports. Districtwide, SFUSD’s baseline results show that students are testing above the state average in both math and English Language Arts.

When:   Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015 / 5 – 6 p.m.

Where:  SFUSD Boardroom / 555 Franklin St.

John says his experience in teaching, coaching and leading has informed his hopeful vision of the future.
