Each spring, most students in California participate in the statewide testing program, which is the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System. The tests in the CAASPP System provide information to teachers, parents/guardians, and students about students’ progress and readiness for college and career. In grades three through eight, most students take the Smarter Balanced online tests for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. However, students who have a significant cognitive disability (as designated in their individualized education program) are eligible to take the California Alternate Assessments (CAAs). In grades five and eight, students are also tested in science. For more information, please visit www.eesd.org/page.cfm?p=2653.

Specific to Millbrook, beginning next week, students in Grades 3 thru 6 will be taking these assessments. These computer-based tests are for English language arts/literacy and mathematics.  In addition, students in 5th grade will also be taking the California Standards Test for science.

Please refer to the following schedule when making health appointments for your child to avoid conflicts. Also, please be aware, these tests are untimed and we will not be able to interrupt classrooms during testing sessions for any reason. Thank you for your support and cooperation. Please note language arts testing takes place in April while math takes place in May.

Parents and caregivers who drive on campus and in neighborhoods near school can plan an important role in enhancing safety near schools by following safe driving practices. At arrival and dismissal times, drivers are often in a hurry and distracted which can lead to unsafe conditions for students and others walking, bicycling and driving in the area.

Drivers should always:

  • Slow down and obey all traffic laws and speed limits, both in school zones and in neighborhoods surrounding the school.
  • Comply with local school drop-off and pick-up procedures for the safety of all children accessing the school.
  • Avoid double parking or stopping on crosswalks to let children out of the car. Double parking will block visibility for other children and other motorists. Visibility is further reduced during the rain and fog seasons when condensation forms on car windows.
  • Avoid loading or unloading children at locations across the street from the school. This forces youngsters to unnecessarily cross busy streets—often mid-block rather than at a crosswalk.
  • Prepare to stop for a school bus when overhead yellow lights are flashing. Drive with caution when you see yellow hazard warning lights are flashing on a moving or stopped bus.
  • Stop for a school bus with its red overhead lights flashing, regardless of the direction from which the driver is approaching. Drivers must not proceed until the school bus resumes motion and the red lights stop flashing, or until signaled by the school bus driver to proceed.
  • Watch for children walking or bicycling (both on the road and the sidewalk) in areas near a school.
  • Watch for children playing and gathering near bus stops. Watch for children arriving late for the bus, who may dart into the street without looking for traffic.
  • Watch for children walking or biking to school when backing up (out of a driveway or leaving a garage).

Millbrook Area Pedestrian Safety Projects


The City of San Jose has begun pedestrian safety improvements along D'Amico Drive at Lamond Court and along Apperson Ridge Drive at Mt. Oso Drive in the Millbrook Neighborhood. This is being done because so many of our families and children are showing that they understand that walking to school is an important way to facilitate a healthy lifestyle and a safe walking environment to and from school. Last year, the City completed improvements to Millbrook Drive, Yancy Drive, and Remington Way as part of the Walk n Roll Safe Routes to School program. The improvements along D'Amico and Apperson Ridge are part of the final phase of improvements to the neighborhood. Some street construction and minor traffic detours will begin along these streets beginning the week of March 14th and continuing into April. Please allow extra time for getting to and from school if you / your family travels this route in the morning. As part of the construction, the San Jose Police Department will be deploying a traffic enforcement unit beginning the week of March 14th THROUGHOUT the Millbrook area. Police and parking enforcement officers will be out during the month of March issuing citations to motorists that do not observe traffic and safety laws. Traffic, double parking and other safety fines issued by the Officers in a school zone begin at $441. Please be extra aware of your time and the safety of those around you during these next few weeks, and avoid any fines and problems for you or those around you. These safety improvements will improve the conditions for all of us.
