Our goal is to educate each child to their highest potential. To achieve this goal, teachers use multiple measures every day to see how well students are growing academically, emotionally, and behaviorally. Teachers gauge students’ progress through classroom observation, performance on tasks, classroom assessments, and homework. We use district assessments to look at student progress throughout the district. Lastly, the Eight California State Priorities, including State Assessments, provide the framework for our state accountability system.
