    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.

  •   Preliminary 2022 CAASPP results are available

    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 85% of our Deer Canyon students met or exceeded standards on the 2022 CAASPP.
    • In mathematics, an overall average of 84 % of our Deer Canyon 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

    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.


  •   Free and Reduced-price Meal Applications

    Even though meals are now free for all students, PUSD Food and Nutrition is still required to collect meal applications.  Please use this link www.MySchoolApps.com to complete a simple and quick application.
