Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s):

For the 2021 spring administration of the California Assessment of Student
Performance and Progress (CAASPP), also known as the Smarter Balanced
Assessment (SBA), for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics,
Berkeley High School will be administering the assessments to 11th grade
students the week of June 7. This year we have permission to offer the
assessment after the school year ends, in order to minimize impact on
instruction. *Our priority is to keep our students and educators safe* by
following state, county, and local health and safety requirements
associated with the current pandemic.

The CAASPP is an important opportunity for our students to demonstrate
academic achievements, possibly earning placement in UC/CSU courses, the
State Seal of Biliteracy, the Golden State Seal Merit, or Reclassified
Fluent English Proficient.

While you have the right to submit a signed exemption for specific tests to
the Berkeley High School Office, we strongly encourage your student’s
participation. The CAASPP is one piece of information helping us make
decisions to improve our school programs. If you would like to exempt your
student, you must email Carrie Berg (carrieberg at berkeley.net) with your
student’s name, ID #, and the exams from which you would like them to be
excused; we will verify that this is the guardian email address we have on

Please see your 11th grade student’s assigned test time by finding their
last name in the table below:

*Last Name Starts with:*

*Test Day:*

*Test Time:*



Monday, June 7




Tuesday, June 8




Wednesday, June 9




Thursday, June 10




Friday, June 11



*CAASPP is untimed. Students may leave once they have finished their exam.
The time estimate given to complete both exams is 5hours and 30 minutes.
Students will have a 30-minute window to eat lunch. If students need more
time, they may return the following day to complete their exam. If a
student is not able to make their assigned date, we will be offering a
make-up date on Monday, June 14th; it will also begin at 9AM, with students
meeting at the M-Gate.

If you have any questions, please email Carrie Berg at
carrieberg at berkeley.net.
