Common Core State Standards come to Quail Summit
Why are we transitioning to the CCSS?

Educational standards describe what students should learn in each subject and each grade level. In California, as many states, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all K-12 students.
Since 2010, 46 states have adopted the same standards for English and math, but some states have added a few additional standards. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These standards ensure all students get a high quality education, even if they move states.
Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the CCSS to prepare students for the 21st century - both in college and the workplace. At Quail Summit, we have transitioned to the CCSS in K-1 grades, and 2nd-5th will transition next year.
New State/Federal Testing Coming 2014–15 School Year. Take a Peek!
The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (Smarter Balanced) has placed online for public access a set of practice tests for grades three through eight and grade eleven.

Practice tests are available in both English-language arts and mathematics for each grade. The practice tests are available on the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Practice Tests Web page and include test questions with the same features that students will experience in 2014–15.

Online access to the practice tests will not require a unique username and password, so schools and districts can use them for teacher training as well as discussions with parents, policymakers, and other interested stakeholders. Members of the public may also access the tests. There will be no immediate scoring of the tests, but scoring keys will be made available later in the year.
