February 12, 2021 Dear Farmersville Unified School District Family, We hope that your family is safe and well! Each year, California students take several statewide tests as part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). These tests provide important assessment information for parents / guardians, teachers, and school administrators about how well students are learning and becoming college and career ready in English, mathematics, and science. The district is required to CAASPP test students in grades 3-8 and 11-12. CAASPP testing will begin March 2, 2021 and end May 28, 2021. Students participating in CAASPP testing will be tested in-person (at school) . Due to COVID-19 safety requirements students will be scheduled for CAASPP testing to ensure class sizes do not exceed 14 students in any classroom. The district will adhere to all COVID-19 safety requirements including desk shields for each student, spacing students 6 feet apart for meeting social distancing requirements, student and staff face coverings worn at all times while on campus, provide student hand sanitation stations, and disinfecting classrooms daily. The district encourages families to provide student transportation daily during CAASPP testing due to limited school bus capacity. For students who have documented medical conditions or COVID-19 related symptoms and cannot CAASPP test in-person (at school), a Remote CAASPP Testing Waiver will need to be submitted along with a medical note and approved by the District Nurse and Principal. Please visit the District webpage for additional CASSPP testing information including: school testing dates and times, CAASPP Remote Testing Waiver application, and bus schedules during CAASPP testing. Each school will send out additional CAASPP testing information prior to testing. Please feel free to contact your child’s school if you have additional CAASPP testing questions. In closing, the District will continue to provide FUSD families with updates on our district webpage and ParentSquare notices. Thank you for your continued support of our schools! Gratefully, Dr. Paul Sevillano, Superintendent
