FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: MEASURING PROGRESS IN THE COMMON CORE As we’ve been talking about for several years, California has a new set of curriculum standards in English and mathematics. These are known as the Common Core Standards. The standards were designed to make sure that our K-12 education program prepares children to be ready for college and careers. The standards have been adopted by most of the states and feature increased rigor and more emphasis on helping students apply concepts, use more abstract thinking, and perform tasks that require synthesis and analysis across multiple contexts. In these first few years after the adoption of Common Core, educators have been working to deeply understand the new standards and develop the knowledge, skills and new ways of teaching that can support the new expectations. This year will be the first year that public schools are being held accountable for fully implementing the Common Core Standards in English and Math by participating in the new state assessment system using the Smarter Balanced Assessments. And this will be the first time that scores from these tests will be reported to parents. In elementary school, the Smarter Balanced Assessments will only be given in grades three, four, and five. These tests are very different from the old multiple-choice California Standards Test (CST). Along with some traditional multiple-choice responses, there are a variety of other question types including constructed written responses. In fact, questions requiring abstract thinking, synthesis and analysis are 50-60% of the new assessments. These tests are also administered on the computers – a relatively new format for many students. These tests will be administered in late April–early May (spread over several weeks so that students don’t test too long at any one sitting). Children will not test every day. A more detailed schedule for your child’s grade level will be sent home after Spring Break. Please do try to send your child on time and avoid absences so your child can take the tests with his or her class and not on a make-up day. Keep in mind that these new assessments cannot be compared with the old CST because they are so different. Based on projections from the Smarter Balanced field tests, it is very likely that scores on these new assessments will be lower than on the CST. So, don’t be alarmed – this will be the case at all schools and it’s not just your child or your school that may have lower scores. The state tests are also only one measure of student progress. Please let me know if you’d like to know more about testing and assessment at Edison. March 20 – Noche de Cesar Chavez 6:00 – 8:00 P.m. Cafeteria

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: Midiendo Progreso en las Normas Comunes Como lo hemos estado platicando por varios años, California tiene un nuevo conjunto de normas del curso de estudios en inglés y matemáticas. Estas son conocidas como las Normas Comunes Principales. Las normas fueron diseñadas para asegurar que nuestro programa de educación de K – 12 prepare a los niños para estar listos para la universidad y carreras. Las normas han sido adoptadas por la mayoría de los estados y presenta rigor aumentado y más énfasis en ayudar a los estudiantes a aplicar conceptos, usar pensamientos más abstractos, y cumplir trabajos que requieren síntesis y análisis a través múltiples contextos. En estos primeros años después de la adopción de Normas Comunes, los educadores han estado trabajando para comprender profundamente las nuevas normas y desarrollar conocimiento, habilidades y maneras nuevas de enseñar que puedan apoyar a las nuevas expectativas. Este año siendo el primer año que las escuelas públicas tienen que dar contabilidad de implementar completamente las Normas Comunes Principales en inglés y matemáticas participando en el nuevo sistema de asesoramientos del estado usando los Asesoramientos de Balances Inteligentes. Y esta será la primera vez que los resultados de estos exámenes se reportarán a los padres. En la escuela primaria, los Asesoramientos de Balances Inteligentes solamente se les darán a los estudiantes en los grados tercero, cuarto y quinto. Estos exámenes son muy diferentes de los antiguo Exámenes Estandarizados de California (CST) de múltiples opciones. Aparte de las respuestas tradicionales de múltiples opciones, hay una variedad de otros tipos de preguntas incluyendo respuestas escritas construidas. De hecho, las preguntas requiriendo pensamiento abstracto, síntesis y análisis son de 50-60% de los nuevos exámenes. Estos exámenes son administrados en las computadoras – un formato relativamente nuevo para muchos estudiantes. Estos exámenes serán administrados a fines de abril – principios de mayo (divididos en el transcurso de varias semanas para que los estudiantes no tengan que tomar exámenes por mucho tiempo sentados a la vez). Los niños no tomarán exámenes todos los días. Un horario con más detalles para el nivel de grado de su hijo/a se mandará al hogar después de las Vacaciones de Primavera. Por favor traten de mandar a su hijo/a a tiempo y eviten ausencias para que su hijo/a pueda tomar los exámenes con su clase y no en el día de reponerlos. Tengan en mente que estos nuevos exámenes no pueden compararse con los antiguos CST porque son muy diferentes. Basado en las proyecciones de los exámenes de prueba de Balances Inteligentes, es muy probable que los resultados en estos nuevos exámenes sean más bajos que los de CST. Así es que, no se alarmen – esto será el caso en todas las escuelas y no es solamente su hijo/a o su escuela que pueda tener bajos resultados. Los exámenes del estado son solamente una medida del progreso estudiantil. Por favor avísenme si les gustaría saber más sobre los exámenes y asesoramientos en Edison.

March 19, 2015 Dear Parents and Guardians, Since the 2011-12 school year, the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) has been aligning its curriculum to the new Common Core State standards. The new, more rigorous math standards have required the realignment of the middle school math courses previously offered. Our current sequence of middle school math courses is based on recommendations from the CA Math Frameworks document, Appendix A of the CCSS for Mathematics, and the knowledge of our own teachers. The purpose of this letter is to share some important information regarding math placement for the 2015-16 school year. Years of data show that a small group of students have successfully navigated an accelerated pathway. Our District will continue supporting those students who seek such acceleration. Our Four-Year College Math Pathway includes Core 6, Core 7 and Core 8, the middle-school courses that prepare students for successfully completing the three high-school courses required by the University of California as well as a recommended fourth year of higher-level math. This pathway has acceleration points after 5th grade, 6th grade, 8th grade and 9th grade. Placement in the acceleration classes is based on multiple measures, including a district-wide math readiness test; prior CST scores in ELA and Math; elementary report cards. WHAT’S THE SAME? • Schools use multiple measures for placing students into math courses, including state or national assessment data and teacher input (report card data.) • Parents can provide input on his/her child’s math placement by consulting with his/her counselor. WHAT’S DIFFERENT? • Most students will begin middle school in Math Core 6. • Some students are prepared to skip Math Core 6 and begin middle school in Math Core 7/8. Students who successfully complete Math Core 7/8 enroll in algebra as seventh graders. • Placement criteria for Math Core 7/8 include student assessment results in ELA. This is because the CCSS in math require that students engage in close reading of complex, real-world math problems and that they propose solutions and rationale for those solutions both orally and in writing. WHAT ARE NEXT STEPS? • Counselors will place students into the appropriate math course based on the criteria. • Parents will receive a notification of their child’s math placement. • Spring CAASPP assessment results may be used for adjustment of initial placement.

19 de marzo 2015 Estimados padres y tutores, Desde el año escolar 2011-12, el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Santa Mónica-Malibu (SMMUSD) ha estado alineando su currículo a los nuevos Estándares Estatales Fundamentales Comunes. Los nuevos, mas rigurosos Estándares de matemáticas, han requerido la realineación de los cursos de matemáticas para las escuelas secundarias previamente ofrecidos. Nuestra secuencia actual de cursos de matemáticas para las escuelas secundarias se basa en las recomendaciones del documento de Estructura de Matemáticas de CA, Apéndice A de la CCSS para Matemáticas, y el conocimiento de nuestros propios maestros. El propósito de esta carta es para compartir información importante con respecto a la colocación de matemáticas para el año escolar 2015-16. Años de datos muestran que un pequeño grupo de estudiantes ha navegado con éxito una vía acelerada. Nuestro Distrito seguirá apoyando a los estudiantes que buscan tal aceleración. Nuestro camino a la universidad de cuatro años de matemáticas incluye Fundamentos 6 (Core 6), Fundamentos (Core 7) y Fundamentos 8 (Core 8), los cursos de secundaria que preparan a los estudiantes para completar con éxito los tres cursos de la preparatoria requeridos por la Universidad de California, así como un cuarto año de matemáticas recomendado en un nivel superior. Esta vía tiene puntos de aceleración después de 5º grado, 6º grado, 8º grado y 9º grado. La colocación en las clases de aceleración se basa en varias medidas, incluyendo una prueba de preparación de matemáticas de todo el distrito; las puntuaciones anteriores de CST en ELA y Matemáticas; las boletas de calificaciones de primaria. ¿QUÉ PERMANECE IGUAL? • Las escuelas usan múltiples medidas para colocar a los estudiantes en los cursos de matemáticas, incluyendo los datos de evaluación estatales o nacionales y aportación del maestro (datos de la boleta de calificaciones.) • Los padres pueden dar su opinión sobre la colocación de matemáticas de su hijo/hija, consultando con su consejero. ¿QUÉ ES DIFERENTE? • La mayoría de los estudiantes comenzarán la escuela secundaria en matemáticas Core 6. • Algunos estudiantes están preparados para pasar Matemáticas Core 6 y comenzar la escuela media en matemáticas Core 7/8. Los estudiantes que completen exitosamente las Matemáticas 7/8 se inscriben en álgebra como alumnos de séptimo grado. • Los criterios de colocación para las Matemáticas Core 7/8 incluyen resultados de evaluación estudiantil en ELA. Esto se debe a que los CCSS en matemáticas requieren que los estudiantes SANTA MONICA-MALIBU UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

1651 Sixteenth Street • Santa Monica • California 90404-3891 • (310) 450-8338 • www.smmusd.org


participen en la lectura atenta de, problemas de matemáticas del mundo real complejos y que proponen soluciones y la justificación de esas soluciones, tanto oralmente como por escrito. ¿CUALES SON LOS SIGUIENTES PASOS? • Los consejeros colocarán a los estudiantes en el curso de matemáticas adecuado basándose en los criterios mencionados. • Los padres recibirán una notificación con colocación de matemáticas de su hijo. • Los resultados de la evaluación de primavera CAASPP pueden utilizarse para ajustar la colocación inicial. Si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietudes acerca del horario de su hijo, por favor comuníquese con el consejero de la escuela secundaria de su hijo. Atentamente, Dr. Ellen Edeburn Directora, Currículo e Instrucción Secundarias (grados 6-12)
