Important News!!

Olivelands is a California Distinguished School.

What is CAASPP?

CAASPP stands for California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress.  This is the new name for the Common Core test that will take place for 3rd – 8th graders in the Briggs School District.  Our testing window will be for 6 weeks starting on April 7th.  Just a reminder, these tests are field tests only and will not generate any scores.  The students in 3rd and 4th grades will take the CAASPP test on laptop computers in their classrooms under the direction of their classroom teacher, a test administrator and the site coordinator.


What is LCAP?

Local Control Accountability Plan

The LCAP is a critical part of the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).  Each school district must engage parents, educators, employees and the community to establish these plans.  The plans will describe the school district's overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals.

The LCAPs must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities.  The plans will also demonstrate how the district's budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.

School districts will decide how to use the funds, but under the new system they must get input from their local communities.  They also have to tie their budgets to improvement goals by creating a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

Vision and Mission Statement

Briggs Elementary School District is a community that nurtures academic excellence for all.  Our students are well-rounded citizens who are creative, responsible, productive members of an ever changing, and challenging global society.
 
Our mission is to create a safe and healthy learning community by embracing partnerships with our staff, students and families.  Together, we will foster mutual respect, character development, and academic growth with the goal of life-long learning.

From the Superintendent

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you for visiting our district website. It has many resources for you to access information about our district, schools and your students. We are proud of Briggs School District's long history of strong community support, a commitment to educational excellence and our dedication to providing all children an opportunity to gain their full potential. 

From its beginnings as a single school house to today with a preschool, two campuses and a state of the art science lab we continue to prosper  and are always reaching towards excellence.  Our devoted faculty, staff, and Parent Faculty Organization (PFO)  work tirelessly to assure that our students are nurtured in an atmosphere of safety, trust, kindness and respect. 

If you have any questions or concerns about your child's education please contact me so that we can work together to find a solution. Your feedback is also encouraged! 

Sincerely,


Deborah E. Cuevas Superintendent
