The San Francisco Unified School District Board of Education is asking for your help in selecting the next superintendent of schools. We are soliciting input from students, staff, parents, and community about your desired qualities and characteristics for the next superintendent and want you to share your thoughts on district strengths and challenges.
La Junta de Educación del Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Francisco está pidiendo su ayuda para seleccionar al próximo superintendente de escuelas. Estamos solicitando la opinión de los estudiantes, el personal, los padres y la comunidad acerca de las cualidades y características que desean ver en el próximo superintendente, y queremos que comparta con nosotros que piensa usted son las fortalezas y los desafíos del Distrito Escolar.
As all public school districts in the State of California, including SFUSD, transitioned from STAR testing to the Smarter Balanced Assessments Consortium’s (SBAC) standardized assessments, all 9th grade applicants to Lowell were temporarily required to take the Lowell Admissions Test in the interim years 2015-16 and 2016-17.
As results from the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium’s (SBAC) standardized tests SFUSD became available, SFUSD planned to use scores from the 7th grade SBAC for SFUSD Lowell applicants for the 2017-18 school year.
However, the district has received feedback from parents that there was not sufficient notice regarding the use of SBAC tests for Lowell admissions. Therefore, the district has determined that all applicants for Lowell for the 2017-18 school year will again be required to take the Lowell Admissions Test in January. For SFUSD students who have 7th grade SBAC scores, the district will use the highest score from either SBAC or the Lowell Admissions Test in English Language Arts and Math for its admissions’ calculations.
In 2017, the test will be administered on January 4, 5, 6, and 9 and students will be assigned by last name. More details are included on the Lowell application.
This will be the final year current SFUSD students applying to Lowell will be required to take the Lowell Admissions Test. For the 2018-19 and all subsequent years, SFUSD will use 7th grade SBAC scores for SFUSD student applicants to Lowell.
Applicants for Lowell must submit both a Lowell application and an enrollment application by Friday, December 16, 2016 to either their present SFUSD middle school or to the Educational Placement Center, which is temporarily located at 655 De Haro Street.
