California Assessment of Student Performance (CAASPP) 2017-2018

ELPAC (formerly CELDT) will no longer be given in the summer. Only Kindergarten students or students just entering the country will be given an initial ELPAC test. Instead, students will take the ELPAC in Spring 2019.  Please email Cathy Di Vincenzo (divincenzo.cathy@tusd.org) if you have questions or concerns. Thank you.
