Starting Smarter Websites

On April 25, the California Department of Education (CDE), in collaboration with the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium and Educational Testing Service, launched two new websites to help empower parents/guardians and families to become partners in their children’s academic success:

 

 
These family-focused websites provide resources to facilitate parents’/guardians’ understanding of the scores presented on their child’s Student Score Reports. Using these websites, families can become involved in their child’s educational progress and:
Learn more about the performance areas in each subject and grade.
See sample test questions.
Prepare for parent-teacher conferences with a useful downloadable guide.
Access high-quality resources to support learning at home.
 

Empezando Sitios Web Inteligentes

El 25 de abril, el Departamento de Educación de California (CDE por sus siglas en Inglés), en colaboración con el Consorcio de las Pruebas de Smarter Balanced (Pruebas Formativas, Interinas, Sumativas) y el Servicio de Pruebas Educacional (ETS por sus siglas en Inglés), lanzó dos nuevos sitios web para poder ayudar a los padres, tutores y familias para que se conviertan en socios en el éxito académico de sus hijos:

Estos sitios web enfocados para las familias proveen recursos para facilitar la compresión a padres o tutores de los

familias pueden involucrarse en el progreso educacional de sus hijos y:
 
Aprender más sobre las diferentes áreas de rendimiento por cada materia y grado.
Ver ejemplos de preguntas.
Prepararse para las conferencias de padres con una buena guía descargable.

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

 
Formation
Each California Public School from Kindergarten through grade 12, with 21 or more English learners must form a functional English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The ELAC is a committee for parents or other community members who want to advocate for English Learners.
 
Major Function
The purpose of the ELAC (or subcommittee, if appropriate) is to advise the principal and school staff on programs and services for English learners and the SSC on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement.
