In the 21/22 school year students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 were once again required to take the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English Language Arts (ELA) and Math. During the pandemic, assessments were put on hold and many schools were faced with the challenge of pivoting to virtual learning.
Our at-home learning model made it much easier to make adjustments due to the pandemic and we are proud to report that our students performed better compared to 18/19!
ELA: 49.4% of our students that took the 21/22 assessment Met or Exceeded the standard. San Juan Unified School District’s rate was 42.6%.
Math: 31.5% of our students that took the 21/22 assessment Met or Exceeded the standard. San Juan Unified School District’s rate was 29.2%.
See the comparative breakdown of results by year:
In 21/22, the statewide percentage of students meeting or exceeding standards in ELA was 47% (was 51% in 18/19) and 33% in Math (was 40% in 18/19). To see the change in test scores from 18/19 to 21/22 for other schools and districts use the tool found at the end of this article which draws from more detailed reports accessible on the California Department of Education’s Test Results at a Glance dashboard.
Why Are San Juan’s Results Important?
San Juan Unified School District is the authorizer for our charter. Every few years we need to petition to have our charter renewed and positive outcomes, like this year’s assessment results, help us keep our charter so we can continue to serve our students.
Thank you to all the students and parents that participated. We appreciate your dedication to learning and growing despite the challenges of the last few years.
Kudos to our amazing teachers that supported these efforts by helping our students prepare and complete state assessments. Keep up the great work!
