Castlemont Elementary School

State Testing to Begin in May

This year, our students in grades 3–5 will participate in the statewide testing program called the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). The tests in the CAASPP System provide information to teachers, parents/guardians, and students about students’ progress and readiness for college and career.

Our school’s testing dates are:

  • 3rd-5th grades May 1 - May 24

We ask that all appointments are scheduled outside of regular school hours so as to not disrupt you students testing experience.

For tips on how to help your child do well on tests, go to or ask your child’s teacher.

If you would like more information about the CAASPP System, please visit the Parent/Student tab of the CDE’s CAASPP Web page at

If you have questions about your child’s participation in CAASPP, or your right to have your child opt out of testing, please contact the Castlemont office.
