All Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District schools and offices will be closed Friday, May 6th, which is a non-student day. Schools and offices will reopen on Monday, May 9th.


Our students will take the CAlifornia Assessment of Student Performance and Progress test (CAASPP) in May. The CAASPP will continue to use the SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium) as their testing platform for English Language Arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics.  This online test includes both a multiple choice/short answer section, as well as a performance task, and is based on the Common Core State Standards being used in California.  Students with an individualized education program (IEP) are eligible to take the California Alternate Assessments (CAAs).

Our eighth grade students will also take either the California Standards Test (CST) for Science or the California Modified Assessment (CMA) for Science assessment.

Please note that our testing dates are:

April 25-29 - 8th Grade Science Test in Science Classes

May 2-5     - 6th Grade ELA Test in Core Classes

                - 7th Grade Math Test Math Classes

May 9-12   - 7th Grade ELA Test in Core Classes

                - 8th Grade Math Test in Math Classes

May 16-19  - 8th Grade ELA Test in Core Classes
