2019-20 School Calendar Survey

Dear CMP Students, Parents, and Staff,

As the school year is coming to a close, I would like to thank all of you for your continued support of our Montessori philosophy and program.   Your input is valued and makes us stronger each year so that we can provide the best for our students.

During the 2019-2020 school year, CMP will be making a change that will impact that school year calendar.  Beginning in 2019-2020, CMP will offer five (5) weeks of intersession: one (1) week at Thanksgiving and the remaining four (4) weeks divided between the winter and spring breaks.   We believe this change will promote optimal learning for our students, as well as, programmatic, operational, and fiscal efficiency.

Please take a moment to complete this short survey by clicking this link: https://survs.com/survey/6c1ly95qsf.   After we collect the survey results, we will be sharing this information with you next fall.

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, the state academic testing program

February 23, 2018

Dear CMP Families,

This Spring will be our fourth year of participating in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, the state academic testing program.  Students in third through eighth grade will be participating in the computer adaptive CAASPP, for English/Language Arts and Mathematics.  This year our fifth and eighth grade students will again take the field test of the California Science Test or CAST.  As a field test, students will not receive scores for science this year.

Prior to administration of CAASPP, students will have the opportunity to participate in a training test, if needed, and interim assessments to help students become comfortable with process of online testing.

In the coming weeks you will be receiving more detailed student testing information through campus communications.  Your student’s teacher will let you know when their classroom will be testing.  Pursuant to California Education Code Section 60615, parents/guardians may annually submit to the school a written request to excuse their child from any or all of the CAASPP assessments; however, we strongly encourage every student to participate.  The tests are one indicator of how our students are progressing, and assists us in program planning.

Please do not hesitate to contact your campus principal or me if you have any questions.
