General Information


Assessment and Research is primarily responsible for the coordination and administration of all state and national mandated assessments (STAR, CAHSEE, Physical Fitness, CELDT, and NAEP).  This office also plays an important role in working with our schools’ use of assessment data to inform instruction, support student learning, and evaluate the quality of our programs. 

Through the use of DataDirector, we provide a means by which school administrators and teachers have immediate access to student achievement data.

Basic Principles

  • To provide service and support to our Governing Board, our school sites, our administrators, our teachers, and our classified staff.
  • To improve performance, not merely audit it.
  • To diagnose learning, not just show it.
  • To improve the quality of our instructional program.
  • To view assessment as FOR learning, not assessment OF learning.


If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me or my assistants Maureen Sharkey and Cheryl Meagher.
