SSFHS Receives Honor Roll Recognition




Cool Science Happens Here!


AP Biology students produced micro-graphs of plant stem cross sections.

They used micro-tomes to slice paper thin cross sections. The cross sections were treated with ethanol and blue toluidine buffer solution.

They made slides of the specimens using glycerol and then used light microscopes to magnify the specimens 40 to 100 times.

This micro-graph was produced by Justin Loman.

What are the CAASPP results?
This summer, you should have received the results of your student California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) testing. These are the tests our students took last spring. The tests are based on the Common Core, a set of academic standards, or learning goals, for math and English that define what our students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade.
What do the CAASPP results mean?
The CAASPP report will show an overall score for your student in each subject, ranging from 2,000 to 3,000. This score shows if a student met, did not meet or exceeded expectations for their grade. The second page of the report includes a further breakdown of that score, providing individualized information on your student’s academic strengths and potential challenges. The report will also compare your student’s results from last spring’s test to his/her results in previous grades, if available. For more information on how to read your score report, go to: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/caasppssreports.asp
How will my child’s test results used?
The test results provide you and the school more detailed information on where your child needs more support, or where they could be accelerated in the future. You can work together with your child’s new teacher(s) and/or school administers to identify subjects where your child could improve, how you can better support your child at home, and focus on making progress in the coming school year. Testing is important, but it’s only one way to gauge how students are doing. Your child’s scores will be taken into account as part of a broader look at their academic progress.
Additionally, the California Department of Education will soon be releasing summaries of how our students performed as a school, district, county, and state. Once released, the summaries will be available here: http://caaspp.cde.ca.gov/. This information can be used to compare your school to other schools and to district and statewide results. It will also help to show you how your child performed on the test relative to other students. This information will also be combined with other data about our school in the state's new accountability system that will come out later this fall. The new system will provide the public with a broader set of outcome data including graduation rates, chronic absentee rates, suspension rates, English learner progress, and a measure of college and career readiness. This data dashboard will help our school in setting its priorities for the future so that we can focus on the areas of greatest need.
¿Qué son los resultados de CAASPP?
Este verano, usted debe haber recibido los resultados del examen estudiantil California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Estos son los exámenes que fueron administrados durante la primavera. Los exámenes son basados en Common Core, un conjunto de estándares académicos, o metas de aprendizaje en matemáticas e lenguage que definen lo que los estudiantes deben saber y ser capaces de hacer al final de cada año escolar.
¿Qué significan los resultados del examen CAASPP?
El reporte de CAASSPP mostrará un resumen breve de la puntuación para su estudiante en cada área de aprendizaje. La puntuación varia  2,000 a 3,000 puntos. La puntuación muestra si un estudiante alcanzo, no alcanzo, o supero las expectativas para su grado. La segunda página del reporte incluye más información sobre la puntuación que obtuvo su hijo(a), incluyendo información sobre las fortalezas académicas y áreas de desafío de su estudiante. El reporte también incluye una comparación de los  resultados de su estudiante durante esta primavera a los resultados de su hijo(a) durante años anteriores, si la información está disponible. Para más información sobre los resultados del reporte, visite: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/caasppssreports.asp
¿Cómo se usaran los resultados de mi hijo(a)?
Los resultados del examen le proporcionan a usted y a la escuela información más detallada sobre áreas donde su hijo(a) necesita más apoyo, o áreas donde el/ella puede acelerarse en el futuro. Usted puede trabajar junto con el maestro/a de su hijo(a) y / o los administradores de la escuela de su hijo(a) para identificar áreas donde su hijo(a) podría mejorar, estrategias para mejor apoyar a su hijo(a) en el hogar, y como progresar durante el año escolar. Los exámenes son importantes, pero son solo una manera de medir como están progresando los estudiantes. Los resultados de su hijo/a serán contados como parte de una mirada más amplia sobre su progreso académico.
Adicionalmente, el Departamento de Educación de California pronto publicará resúmenes de cómo nuestros estudiantes progresaron al nivel de la escuela, distrito, condado y estado. Al ser publicados, los resúmenes estarán disponibles aquí: http://caaspp.cde.ca.gov/ . Esta información se puede usar para comparar el progreso de su escuela con otras escuelas y con los resultados del distrito y del estado. También le ayudará ver los resultados de su hijo(a) en comparacion a grupos de estudiantes del mismo grado. Esta información también se combinará con otros datos sobre nuestra escuela dentro del nuevo sistema de responsabilidad del estado que saldrá en el otoño. El nuevo sistema proporcionará al público un conjunto más amplio de datos de resultados, incluyendo tasas de graduación, tasas de absentismo, tasas de suspensión, progreso de los estudiantes de inglés y una medida de preparación para la universidad y carrera. Este tablero digital de datos nos ayudará a nuestra escuela a establecer nuestras prioridades para el futuro para que podamos enfocarnos en impactar las áreas de mayor necesidad.
