  • The English Language Proficiency Assessment of California (ELPAC) is the test that is used to measure how well students in kindergarten (K) through grade twelve understand English when it is not their primary language. Identifying students who need help learning English is important so students can get the support they need to do well in school while receiving instruction in all school subjects.

    For more information on the ELPAC, please see the Parent Guide to Understanding the ELPAC.

Physical Fitness Test

  • The main goal of the Physical Fitness Test (PFT) is to help students in starting life-long habits of regular physical activity.

    Students in grades five, seven, and nine take the fitness test. The test has six parts that show a level of fitness that offer a degree of defense against diseases that come from inactivity. The test results can be used by students, teachers, and parents.

    For more information, please see the Parents Guide to Understanding the PFT.

    The PFT has been suspended for the 2020-2021 school year.
