News & Announcements

Foster Road performed well on Dashboard

Dashboard is the new system of accountability for schools in California. This recently released system of accountability aims to measure how districts and schools are performing based on various criteria (i.e. test scores, suspension rates, graduation rates and other measures of student success). This Dashboard gives a "grade" for each measured criteria. Not all graded areas have been given grades, but we are proud to announce that Foster Road was given green and blue indicators (with the color scale indicating blue as the highest and green as the second highest) on all currently reported areas. Please take time to go to the link below (copy and paste the URL onto your web browser) to examine Foster Road's data more closely. You can also just click on the headline title above to be taken to the Dashboard. If you have any questions or would like clarification, please stop by our office and we would be willing to provide further information.

SBAC Testing

State testing for our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students begins Tuesday, April 25th and continues until May 8th. Any students that require extra time or are absent for portions of the test will be provided with makeup dates and times. We hope to have all testing completed by May 12th. Parents you can help your child in various ways. First, please encourage your child every day to do their best. Your positive words go a long way towards making this a time for students to strive to improve and show their progress. Second, make sure they get plenty of rest. Now is not a good time for them to stay up late. Arriving to school well rested is a recipe for better concentration and effort during the testing period. Third, encourage excellent attendance. It has been statistically researched that students perform better when they take these types of tests with their peers. Fourth, provide them with a good breakfast so that they have energy to focus and dedicate their minds to the rigorous tasks required from this test. Fifth, remind them to use their classroom strategies. These include reading stories and directions carefully. It also includes taking their time, showing their work, and taking notes. Good luck to all of you. LET'S SHINE FOSTER ROAD STARS!!!
