CAASPP and ELPAC: NEW--Coffee Sessions
CAASPP and ELPAC email update, January 12, 2021.
Dear LEA CAASPP Coordinator or LEA ELPAC Coordinator:
As we get closer to spring testing, we want to make sure that local educational agencies (LEAs) are receiving all the support they need for successful 2020–21 CAASPP and ELPAC administrations. The CDE and its contractor, ETS, will offer multiple opportunities for LEA staff to ask questions and get answers about the spring assessments and multiple administration options at Coffee Sessions in January and February 2021.
Coffee Sessions will be held every other week and are entirely dedicated to answering questions posed about the assessments by testing coordinators at schools, districts, and county offices of education. The invitations for the Coffee Sessions Zoom links are being sent only to LEA coordinators, to assist in getting your questions heard.
These opportunities may continue through the spring, if additional support is needed.
Select a link in the table that follows to register to participate in one or more of these optional opportunities.
