Smarter Balanced Assessments

Santa Rosa City Schools students will be taking the Smarter Balanced State Assessment which is aligned to the California State Standards. This test will be taken on a computer for grades 3-8 in a March-May window, and grade 11 in an April-May window.This new testing system will use computer adaptive testing to provide valuable feedback for our classroom teachers and our district that we can use to help students succeed.  Please take a moment to review some of the resources and practice tools below.
Pursuant to California Education code,  parents may, in writing, excuse their child from any or all parts of State mandated testing. This request is effective for the school year it is requested. Please talk with your site administrator for further details.
