The Saugus Union School District is set Tuesday to review their standard test scores from 2018-19, recognize Learning Disabilities Month and approve a handful of school site construction projects.
Officially known as California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, the state’s standardized tests cover topics such as mathematics, reading and writing skills under the Common Core State Standards.
The results of those standardized tests were released earlier this week, and district administrators are set to share with the board on Tuesday night what those scores were, how the district achieved them, and where they can approve.
For the 2018-19 school year, 66.34% of district students met or exceeded standards for English language arts and 56.06% met or exceeded standards in mathematics. The statewide averages for ELA and mathematics were 50.87% and 39.73%, respectively.
In addition to test scores, the governing board will likely approve a district-wide declaration recognizing October as Learning Disabilities Awareness month.
“Learning Disabilities include dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and/or a variety of language processing disorders,” the board agenda for the meeting reads. “To ensure that the importance of supporting each of the various learning disabilities is acknowledged, the governing board of the Saugus Union School District recognizes Learning Disabilities Awareness Month for October 2019.”
The board will also be considering approval of a variety of construction projects around the various school sites in the district, including new ceilings, lights and turf at some schools.
The regular meeting for the governing board is set to take place at 6:30 p.m. at the district office, located at 24930 Avenue Stanford in Valencia.
