California Assessment of Student
Performance and Progress (CAASPP)
On January 1, 2014, California Education Code Section 60640 established the CAASPP System of assessments. The CAASPP system includes the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC), The California Alternate Assessment (CAA), The California Science Test (CAST) and the California Alternate Assessment (CAA) for Science. The CAASPP is administered each Spring to California public school students in grades 3-11. Below is the Spring 2017 CAASPP administration schedule for the Los Gatos Union School District.

A parent or guardian may submit a written request to the District to excuse a student from participation in part, or all, of the assessments under the CAASPP. (See Title 5 CCR section 852 and Education code 60604 and 60615). The request must be submitted to the site principal. The ability to make such a request applies only to the CAASPP testing.
