Understanding SBAC Test Results
Twin Rivers families and school staff will soon get the results of new computer-based assessments students took this spring. The district will mail them in late August. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) exams measure student knowledge of California's English language arts and mathematics standards in grades 3-8 and 11. The exams are aligned to Common Core State Standards which set higher expectations for students.
Students will receive an overall score for each subject, ranging from 2,000 to 3,000. Overall scores will be reported within one of four levels: standard not met, standard nearly met, standard met, and standard exceeded.
Preparing for the release of family student score reports, the California Department of Education has posted a new video titled, "Understanding Your Child's Score Report." This video describes and explains the new 2015 Smarter Balanced Consortium Student Score Report.

Immunization Requirements for School
State law requires that for unconditional admission to school, all students under 18 shall be fully immunized according to requirements of the California Department of Health Services (Ed.Code 49403 and 48216, District Policy 5141.31).

All other entering students not fully immunized according to district policy and the schedule provided by the California Department of Health Services may be admitted only on the condition that they obtain any additional immunization(s) within specified time periods.

Personal Beliefs Exemption (PBE)
Students may be exempted from the immunization requirement for medical reasons or for personal beliefs. Parents and the medical care clinician/provider must sign the waiver to obtain this exemption. A physician must submit verification for medical reasons. In the event of an outbreak of a disease for which the child has not been immunized, he or she will be excluded from school for the period of communicability.
The PBE form must be signed by both a health care professional and a parent or guardian when seeking an exemption from required vaccinations. The PBE form also allows for a religious exemption if the family's religion does not permit members to get medical advice or treatment from a health care practitioner. Effective July 2016, only a medical exemption will be accepted. In the event of an outbreak of a disease for which the child has not been immunized, he or she will be excluded from school for the period of communicability.
If you have questions about your child's immunization record and/or admission status, please contact your child's school.

PLT/EARLY RELEASE WEDNESDAY
When we welcome students back for the 2015-2016 school year, their schedules will look slightly different from previous years. Across the district, students will start school at the same time every day, and will be released from school two hours early every Wednesday.
Professional Learning Time (PLT)/Early Release Wednesday will replace Late Start Wednesday. The decision was made after important feedback from parents and staff.
