The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) Field Tests begin in March: Here’s what you need to know.

We are pleased to announce that our school has been selected to participate in the state field test of the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California, the ELPAC, which will replace the current California English Language Development Test (CELDT). This is a great opportunity for our school.

The purpose of the field test is to gather information about the design of the test and the performance of the test questions. This year’s field test is happening in specially-selected schools across California. Some English learners and English-proficient students in our school have been chosen by the state to participate in this field test. 

The test will be administered over a period of several days. Because this is a field test, neither students, parents, nor teachers will receive individual student test scores or reports. 

If you would like to know if your child has been selected for the field test, or if you have any questions, contact our Coordinator, Jessica Lucente, in the front office.   

If you wish to exempt your child(ren) from participating in this opportunity, you will need to submit a written request specifying your child’s name, grade, and the name of the test. This request should be submitted to Jessica Lucente at Calahan Community Charter by Monday, March 13, 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC), by February 1st of each year. The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local education agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC. For more information about SARC requirements, see the California Department of Education (CDE) SARC web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/sa/.

To access the SARC report for Calahan Community Charter, use the link below. 

If you have any specific questions regarding the SARC, please contact the main office at (818) 886-4612.

Thank you!
