State Testing Schedules

All Cambrian schools will be participating in Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) state testing this spring to help gauge student progress in Math and English Language Arts Common Core Standards; in some cases, students will be participating in a pilot administration of the new California Science Test (CAST) for research purposes. State testing reveals a small snapshot of student progress and overall achievement, and is one of many tools that helps us measure our work as a district.

New CDE Data Dashboard Launched -- Find CSD Student Data Quickly and Easily

California is field testing a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K–12 districts and schools – including ours. Called the California School Dashboard (Coming March 2017), the site features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success, including test scores, graduation rates, English learning progress and suspension rates. 

Please Note:

As you may know, the majority of our schools are structured as “dependent charter schools,” which allows us to welcome students from throughout our county, not just our district boundaries. The Dashboard currently lists all charter schools as separate entities, whether they are affiliated with a district or not. As a result, a search in the Dashboard for “Cambrian School District” only brings up information for Bagby Elementary. To see other school site information, simply use the search bar and enter the name of the site. (Note also that there is no data for Steindorf, as the school is in its first year of operation).

 Visit Our Math Adoption Page

We've prepared a handy online resource to help you learn about our proposed new math curriculum, including an FAQ, links to preview materials and info about our Parent Info Night on April 11th. Once you've reviewed the materials, be sure to complete our Math Materials Feedback Form to share your thoughts! The adoption decision will be officially made at the April 20th board meeting.  

Sexual Health Education Education Memo

In addition to updating our Math Curriculum, we are in the process of adopting new Sexual Health and Puberty Curriculum to comply with the California Health Youth Act. Read the memo linked above for an explanation of our process; if you have already reviewed the materials (available at the district office and all school offices) and would like to provide comments for district staff, you may complete the CSD Comprehensive Sexual Education Curriculum Survey.

  • Steindorf is for the Birds!

    Steindorf Fourth Graders partnered with the Wildlife Associates and, through sustained inquiry, hands-on experiences, and in-depth research, have learned about wind turbines and their harmful effects on local birds of prey. Today they presented their final bird-friendly wind turbine prototypes to the community and their mentors from the Wildlife Associates. Suggestions included turbines with horizontal blades, lights, and even turbines designed to look like giant purple flowers(purple repels insects, a bird food source)! Congratulations to the students and thanks to the Wildlife Associates for making this possible!
