Happy Camper Book Fair

The HSC Book Fair Coordinators would like to thank all our Volunteers (student volunteers, Castlemont families and staff) for another successful book fair. Together we got the equivalent of 1,900 books into the hands of our students and their families. That is approximately 342,000 minutes of reading!

We look forward to seeing you all again at our next book fair - Fall 2017. In the meantime, remember “There is more treasure in books, than all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island” -Walt Disney

The California School Dashboard is a new tool from the State of California that replaces the old Academic Performance Index (API).  It will provide parents, educators, and the public with important information they can use to evaluate schools and school districts in an easy-to-understand report card format.

The California School Dashboard is a critical piece of California’s new school accountability and continuous improvement system. A 5-minute video explains how the new tool works and what it looks like.
