New Assessments Beginning
As you may have heard, STAR tests have been replaced this year with what's called the "California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress" (CAASP). These tests are taken on computers and contain different kinds of questions than were in the old tests. AUSD students tested the system last year (the scores didn't count). Students in grades 3-8 and 11 will take the real tests this year from March 16-May 26. Individual score reports will be sent home later this spring. Please note: These scores should not be compared to STAR scores, as the tests are so different. You can learn more about the tests in a letter sent from AUSD on March 15.
Online enrollment is open!. For more information, please see our enrollment page.
