The District is entering into a contract with the  Zayante Sandhills Conservation Bank to purchase the 64,456 sq ft for $450,740.80.  The contract also gives the District the option to purchase an additional 22,664 sq ft over the next 18 months if needed.

This agreement conveys our intent to purchase mitigation credits which is required by USFW prior to project initiation.  USFW approval and signatures will occur after payment and at permit issuance.

L. EDUCATIONAL SERVICES
L.1. CALIFORNIA SCIENCE AND TEST RESULTS AND LOCAL ASSESSMENTS
Rationale:

The CSTs (California Standards Tests) for Science in grades five, eight, and ten are administered only to students in California public schools. All questions are multiple-choice. These tests were developed specifically to assess students' knowledge of the California content standards for science. The 2016 CSTs were required for students who were enrolled in grades five, eight, and ten at the time of testing.

Because the state only tests once a year in key areas (Math, Reading and Science), it is necessary to collect ongoing assessment data throughout the year.


 
Financial Impact:

None.

Quick Summary / Abstract:

2016 was the last year that the CST will be administered.  The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were adopted in 2013, with the framework receiving board approval November, 2016.  New assessments will be begin in 2017-18.

Local Assessments will be determined and administered in key areas beginning this fall. Ongoing assessments allow teachers, students and parents specific information regarding ongoing skills and standards.
