El Segundo 2nd Annual “Party in the park”

May 17th, 2013

Our Manhattan Beach Office Manager Sam and our El Segundo Office Manager Adam will be attending the El Segundo 2nd Annual El! Gala “Party in the park” tonight!! Here is the information about the event from their website!! 

Ed! is a non-profit organization run by a volunteer board including parents, community members, local business partners and small staff.  In addition to the board, Ed! has liaisons from the School Board, PTA, School District, and City Council.

Ed!’s sole mission is to raise funds to support our local schools.  Ed! is unique in that it is the only parent organization that can pay for educational programs.  Funding from Ed! is given to ESUSD in the form of a planned and annalized grant.  Every spring, Ed! partners with ESUSD to determine the monetary needs of the school district and identifies the programs and projects the foundation will fund.  Once the grant has been decided, ESUSD plans for the funds in its general budget and Ed! starts fundraising.  Basically, money raised today by Ed! has already been spent by the schools.

STAR Testing!

April 16th, 2013

Let us help your student put the “Star” in STAR Testing!!! 

Each spring, students in grades two through eleven take a STAR test. The STAR Program looks at how well schools and students are performing. Students take tests in math, reading, writing, science, and history. Teachers and parents can use test results to improve student learning.

The STAR Program includes four tests: the California Standards Tests, the California Modified Assessment, the California Alternate Performance Assessment, and the Standards-based Tests in Spanish.

The STAR Program for 2010–11 has four components:

  • California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA)—The CAPA is an alternate performance assessment to the CSTs in English-language arts (ELA), mathematics, and science. It is an individually administered assessment for pupils with significant cognitive disabilities who have an individualized education program (IEP).
  • California Modified Assessment (CMA)—The CMA is an alternate assessment to the CSTs in ELA, mathematics, and science for eligible pupils who have an IEP and meet the CMA eligibility criteria adopted by the SBE.
  • California Standards Tests (CST)—The CSTs are criterion-referenced tests that assess the California content standards in ELA, mathematics, science, and history-social science.
  • Standards-based Tests in Spanish (STS)—The STS are criterion-referenced tests aligned to the California content standards for reading/language arts and mathematics.

STAR Testing is just around the corner with test being given between April 17th and May 3rd, depending on your school.

STAR Testing is important because:

– Helps place kids in the appropriate class each year

– Used to appropriate funds in the district

– Can identify subject weaknesses in a student

– Colleges are starting to look at them to help determine admittance

– Some teachers give extra credit for doing well. 

We have access to past tests and can help your student prepare to do their best and knock it out of the park. 

Don’t wait… book your appointment today (7 days a week)!
