A Message From Our Principal


Dear Vine Hill Families,
Wow-September was a long month with so many activities happening at school. I have enjoyed getting to know our new students. Additionally, I am enjoying spending time with our continuing students. They are growing up so fast.
One of the things that we do annually as a staff is plan for an emergency. We review the roles we would have during an emergency and we make sure we all know how to turn off the gas and water. Parents, please make sure you update who you would allow to pick up your child from school in an emergency situation. This can be done online on your Power School account. Your child's teacher will print a copy of this to keep in their emergency file.
I hope to see many of you join your children for Bike to School on Thursday, October 8th.

Smarter Balance Test Results

Dear Scotts Valley Families,


The California Assessment Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) test results from 2014-2015 school year have been released!

The California Department of Education (CDE) released the district and schoolwide scores for California on September 9, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. The public has access to the reports on the CDE website, which will display statewide, county, district and school level reports.  Results are available in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and math for students who took the test in the spring of 2015, and were in grades three through eight and eleven.  

Go to http://caaspp.cde.ca.gov/sb2015/ to view the results.

It is important to note that these new tests are a baseline for future progress and should not be compared to old STAR (California Standards Test) math and ELA scores, as they assessed the new Common Core State Standards and are fundamentally different.  Scotts Valley USD will use these results to provide feedback to teachers and administrators to improve instruction for all our students by helping them recognize where students succeed or are struggling.

Our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) outlines our goals and the areas that we will focus on, including implementing Common Core State Standards in Math and ELA, focusing on the Next Generation Science Standards, and integrating technology into our teaching.

The district is expecting paper copies of student results shortly and parents/guardians will receive them in the mail with further explanation.

More information on the Smarter Balanced Assessment System and frequently asked questions (FAQs), follow these links:  http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/caasppcommsb.asp   or  http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/sbcommonqa.asp

Please contact me with questions, comments, or opportunities to get involved.
