Dear Parent/Guardian:

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP is the  state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. This year, CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests in English–language arts, mathematics, and science.

Students will take the test in grade 11 between February 2022 to May 2022. To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you and your child can view the practice test online at the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Practice Test Web page at

Following the spring 2022 testing, students will receive individual score reports. Student score reports will be sent home to parents and will include an overall score, a description of the student’s achievement level for English–language arts and mathematics, and other information. 

If you would like more information, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation, please contact Tricia Petter at (760)336-4300 or

Estimados padres y representantes:


La Evaluación del Rendimiento y Progreso de Estudiantes de California (conocida en inglés como CAASPP), la cual ha reemplazado al Programa de Exámenes y Reportes Estandarizados (conocido en inglés como el Programa STAR), es el nuevo programa de exámenes académicos del estado. CAASPP es un sistema cuya meta es proporcionar información que se pueda usar para supervisar el progreso de los estudiantes y garantizar que todos los estudiantes salgan de la preparatoria listos para una carrera universitaria y profesional. Este año, CAASPP incluye pruebas adaptivas administradas por computadora en lengua y literatura en inglés, matemáticas, y ciencias.

Los estudiantes harán el examen en grado 11 desde marzo 2019 to mayo 2019. Para aprender acerca de los tipos de preguntas que se incluirán en el examen computarizado, usted y su hijo/a pueden ver en inglés el examen de práctica en la página electrónica del Examen de Práctica Smarter Balanced del Departamento de Educación de California (CDE) en


Después del examen que tendrá lugar en la primavera del 2019, los estudiantes recibirán reportes de calificaciones individuales. Los reportes de calificaciones de los estudiantes serán enviados a la casa de los padres e incluirán una calificación general, una descripción de los resultados del estudiante en lengua y literatura en inglés, y en matemáticas, así como otra información. Es importante advertir que estas calificaciones no se pueden comparar con las calificaciones que su hijo/a recibió previamente en los exámenes del Programa STAR porque este examen se basa en los nuevos Estándares académicos fundamentales de California, tiene diferentes tipos de preguntas en el examen, y no se reportará usando las categorías del Programa STAR.


Si desea más información, visite el indicador para Padres/Estudiantes de la página electrónica del sistema CAASPP del CDE en Si tiene alguna pregunta referente a la participación de su hijo/a, comuníquese con Tricia Petter al (760) 336-4313 or


California High School Proficiency Examination

The California High School Proficiency Examination (CHSPE) is a testing program established by California law (Education Code Section 48412). If eligible to take the test, you can earn the legal equivalent of a high school diploma by passing the CHSPE. The CHSPE consists of two sections: an English-language Arts section and a Mathematics section. If you pass both sections of the CHSPE, the California State Board of Education will award you a Certificate of Proficiency, which by state law is equivalent to a high school diploma (although not equivalent to completing all coursework required for regular graduation from high school). Although federal agencies are not bound by state laws, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management has ruled that the Certificate of Proficiency shall be accepted in applications for federal civilian employment. The U.S. Department of Education, including the Federal Student Aid Office, recognizes the CHSPE as the equivalent of a high school diploma in applications for federal financial aid. All persons and institutions subject to California law that require a high school diploma for any purpose must accept the certificate as satisfying the requirement.

Passing the CHSPE does not, by itself, exempt minors from attending school. Minors who have a Certificate of Proficiency must also have verified parent/guardian permission to stop attending school. Many students who pass the CHSPE continue to attend school. State law provides that, if you leave school after passing the CHSPE and are no more than 18 years old, you may reenroll in the district in which you were registered with no adverse consequences. If you do reenroll you may be required to meet new or additional requirements established since you were previously enrolled. If you reenroll and then leave school again, you may be denied re-admittance until the beginning of the following semester. Contact your guidance counselor or school administrator for further information and details about leaving school after passing the CHSPE.

Test Dates:
Registration is now open for the California High School Proficiency Exam (CHSPE) summer administration (Testing Window: May 16 - June 5) and will close on April 30. The locations and times are provided on the CHSPE website. Registration is on a first come, first served basis, and a waiting list will be established for those who are interested.
