Announcements & Events
- Valentine's Day: This year I would like to try something new with the fourth grade crew. Instead of focusing on paper valentines that often go immediately into the recycling, we are instead going to focus on a Stewardship Project to show our love for City View and the world. We will also celebrate Oregon's 158th Birthday. More details to follow. Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. In other words, paper valentines will be optional this year.
- NAEP Testing: Our school has been selected to represent schools across Oregon and the United States by participating in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). In our school, the NAEP test will be given on 2/15/2017. Your child has been selected to take mathematics or reading assessment. NAEP is different from our state assessments because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation's Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.Your child will take a mathematics or reading test. At the end of the test, your child will also be asked some survey questions. NAEP includes these additional questions to help educators better understand how to meet the needs of all students. These questions will ask students to share information about themselves, their educational experiences here at school, and their home life. Student survey questions include areas such as approaches to learning, access to technology, parental jobs and educational history, and information on living situation. All the student survey questions can be viewed online in the NAEP 2017 Sample Questions Booklet at: http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=2598. Students are free to skip any of these survey questions if they do not wish to provide the information.
It will take about 2 hours for most students to take the test. All of the results from this test are completely confidential (Public Law 107-347, Title V, Subtitle A: Confidential Information Protection) and will be used for statistical purposes only.
Information regarding your child’s participation in NAEP:
Your child’s grades will not be affected by this test.
Your child will not receive a score for the NAEP test.
Your child’s answers to the questions on the NAEP test are completely confidential and will not be shared with the school, the district, or the Oregon Department of Education.
Your child may be excused from taking the test for any reason, does not have to finish the whole test, and may skip any question.
NAEP is voluntary and student participation provides a measure of student achievement that can help lead to improvements in education. However, if you do not want your child to participate, please notify me in writing by 2/10/2017.
Your child does not have to study to get ready to take NAEP. We do ask, however, that you encourage your child to do their best and get plenty of rest the night before the assessment. You can read more about NAEP at http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/pdf/parents/2012469.pdf.
If you have questions, please contact the school office.
