    Please Help Increase Our School Funding by Filling Out This Application!

    Although school meals are now free to all students, the application for free and reduced-price meals is still very important.  School funding depends in part on the number of students at our school who qualify for free or reduced-price meals.  With all students now eating for free, fewer families are completing the application and our school is at risk of losing much-needed educational funds. Plus, students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals may also be missing out on discounts on bus transportation, before and after school care, and home internet!   

    Even if you did not qualify before, but your income has changed, you may now qualify. For example, children from a family of four are eligible if the total gross (pre-tax) household income is less than $4,279 per month, or less than $51,338 per year. Household income information is confidential and applying online is quick and easy.  Apply online at MySchoolApps.com, or pick up a paper application in the school office.


    Online registration for the 2022-2023 school year is ongoing. Please visit: New Student Enrollment for enrollment information. 
    If you have questions, please  contact your child(ren)'s schoolsite administrative assistant.

  •   CAASPP Results

    Preliminary 2022 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) results are available for our individual students and our school.  

     

    Test scores are recorded as Standards Exceeded, Standards Met, Standards Nearly Met, and Standards Not Met.

    • In English language arts, an overall average of 73.85% of our Sunset Hills ES students met or exceeded standards on the 2022 CAASPP.

    • In mathematics, an overall average of 71.28% of our Sunset Hills ES students met or exceeded standards on the 2022 CAASPP.

     

    CAASPP was administered to students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 during the Spring of 2022.  If your child took the CAASPP, you can access their individual results through ParentVUE.  Directions for using ParentVUE are linked here.  Please keep in mind that these scores are only one measure of an individual student’s learning. Data from these assessments is used as part of a broader picture of student achievement. Teachers use these results in conjunction with site and classroom assessments and observations to help tailor instruction throughout the school year.

     

    This was the first statewide test given to California students since 2019. Following the pandemic, the 2022 test was significantly revised by the California Department of Education (CDE), providing a new baseline for school districts and sites to measure progress moving forward. Due to the significant changes in the test, districts and sites are unable to make direct comparisons with previous years’ results. However, consistent strong results are indicative of system-wide collaboration by parents, teachers, and school staff to facilitate student success.    We are proud of our students and know their accomplishments are reflected in a variety of ways.  CAASPP results are one measure of progress and should be reviewed alongside other learning information as well.
