Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Rio Vista!  We are proud of our school and are glad you are here.  This is an exciting and rewarding place for students.  We have developed many programs to help students be successful learners.  We believe that each child is a special person capable of significant academic achievement and deserving of a safe, friendly school environment

Our hope is that parents and guardians will take every opportunity to join us throughout the school year either by helping out in the classrooms, joining Site Council, or attending other events we plan. We look forward to seeing you and working together to build a safe community at Rio Vista, a school where all children remember to be safe, responsible and respectful.

CAASPP: Academic State Testing

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), the state's academic testing program, is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career.  CAASPP includes computer adaptive assessments in English-Language Arts and mathematics for students in grades 3-8, and 11 and paper-based tests in science for students in grades 5, 8 and 10.

The CAASPP will be administered at Rio Vista to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.  The testing schedule for our school site is as follows:

Computer-based Testing:  May 9 - May 27, 2016

CST/CMA Science (Paper-pencil Testing):  May 3 - May 13, 2016

For more information about testing options for your student, please visit the Assessment, Research and Evaluation tab of the Mt. Diablo Unified School District webpage at http://www.mdusd.org/departments/r-n-e/CAASPP.
