Benchmark Assessments As part of our regular teaching and assessment process, all students lst-6th grade participate in "benchmark assessments." These assessments provide teachers with information on how students are progressing and help prepare them for the state testing that will be taken this spring. Students are currently taking a math benchmark assessment and will take a Language Arts assessment in February. As we continue to transition to the California Common Core, these assessments provide valuable feedback on our implementation. Our Kindergartners students also participate in 1:1 assessment each trimester. O Up-to-the-minute forecast and road conditions at I00.00I'II|IIPLUMBI NG !
