SBAC Testing at Lawton

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, is the statewide assessment system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career.
CAASPP computer-based tests are based on the new Common Core Standards for English language arts/literacy and mathematics. These assessments include the Smarter Balanced computer adaptive tests in English language arts/literacy and mathematics and the California Alternate Assessment for some students with disabilities. In addition, students in grades 5, 8, and 10 will continue to take the STAR paper/pencil assessments for Science.
SFUSD students in grades 3-8 and 11 will participate in CAASPP testing beginning in March 2016.
To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you and your child can view the practice test online at the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Practice Test Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp. Following the spring 2016 testing, students will receive individual score reports. Student score reports will be sent to parents and include an overall score, a description of the student’s achievement level for English language arts and mathematics, and other information.
If you would like more information, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE CAASPP Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/. Parents/Guardians have the right to request an exemption from all or part of CAASPP testing. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s participation, please contact your child’s school or the SFUSD Achievement Assessments Office at (415) 241-6400.

今年,三藩市聯合校區學生3至8年級和11年級學生將於3月起參加CAASPP 測驗。
在 2016 春季測驗完結後,學生將會收到個人成績報告。當家長接獲子女成績報告後,請留意報告內將會顯示你子女測驗的總體成績、有關他/她在英語語言藝術科和數學科表現水平的簡要敘述,及其它有用資訊。
欲知更多,請瀏覽加州教育部CAASPP網頁(按家長/學生目),網址: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/。家長或監護人有權申請全部或部份免考CAASPP 測驗。若你對子女參加測驗有任何疑問或關注,我鼓勵你與孩子學校聯絡,或請致電三藩市聯合校區學業評估辦事處查詢(電話:415-241-6400)。

Lawton's History

Over seventy years ago, Lawton Alternative School was founded in the growing Sunset District.   The school was built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA), which provided work to nearly eight million Americans during the Great Depression.  Most of the school buildings in the area were built by the same architects in an Art Deco influenced style known as "Streamline Moderne."  This type of style emphasized curving forms, long horizontal lines, and sometimes nautical themes.  Source: Sunset Beacon.

Today, Lawton is a Kindergarten through 8th Grade school with an open enrollment which allows students from any San Francisco neighborhood to apply to attend.  Our school-wide priority is to improve the academic performance of all our students by developing each student's learning potential through a wide variety of challenging programs that provide them with as many active learning and problem solving to reach their full academic potential.  We endeavor to become better citizens through adherence to our motto, "Respect, Responsibility, and Compassion."  Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is committed to fostering a strong sense of community and raising funds to support the classrooms with materials, enrichment programs, and extracurricular activies.

Lawton is a California Distinguished School 1986, 1993, 2002, 2014.
